• “Effective As” Communication
• “Substantially Equivalent Ease Of Use”
“Effective As” Communication
Paul Grossman – California Community Colleges
• In construing the conditions under which
communication is as effective as that provided
to nondisabled persons, the U.S. Department
of Education’s Office of Civil Rights has held
that the three basic components of
effectiveness are:
• timeliness of delivery,
• accuracy of the translation, and
• provision in a manner and medium appropriate to the significance
of the message and the abilities of the individual with the disability
“Substantially Equivalent Ease Of Use”
• the DCL provides a functional definition of accessibility for
students who are blind or have low vision. Under this definition,
• these students must be afforded the opportunity to acquire the same
information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same
services as sighted students.
• In addition, although this might not result in identical ease of use
compared to that of students without disabilities,
• it still must ensure equal access to the educational benefits and
opportunities afforded by the technology and equal treatment in the
use of such technology. The DCL uses the term “substantially
equivalent ease of use” to describe this concept. Page 2, 2011
