Does the Americans with Disabilities Act apply in cyberspace? Without clear guidance from the courts, companies are deciding for themselves. Some businesses have taken steps to make their Web sites more accessible to the disabled. But others have said that while they'll voluntarily alter their sites, they aren't required to do so by the ADA. RadioShack recently reached an agreement with advocates for the disabled. By contrast, Target and the National Federation of the Blind are still fighting in court.
