Ramada.com and Priceline.com

Attorney General (NY) Eliot Spitzer said over the past year (2004) investigators from his office found that portions of the Ramada.com and Priceline.com Internet sites were not accessible although the Americans With Disabilities Act requires that private Web sites be accessible to blind and visually impaired Internet users.

Under the terms of the agreements, the companies will implement a range of accessibility standards authored by the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium, an organization that recommends Internet standards.

Also, Ramada.com and Priceline.com will pay the state of New York $40,000 and $37,500, respectively, as costs of the investigation.
