Accessibility and Disability: Absent Keywords in Business and Professional Communication
Knight, Melinda
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v81 n1 p20-33 Mar 2018
An analysis of user interactions, proceedings papers, and Association for Business Communication-sponsored journals reveals an absence of attention to accessibility and disability. While researchers may have demonstrated a passing awareness of the 1990 American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its implications, so far those implications have not taken center stage. Researchers in fields related to business and professional communication have been publishing work informed by Disability Studies for some time. Thus, a scholarly agenda for accessibility and disability in business and professional communication is long overdue, with a need for studies that address both theory and practice.
