New UK Guidelines on Web Accessibility

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 8, 2006

Developed by the British Standards Institution, and reported yesterday by the Disability Rights Commission: “Key guidance on how to develop a website which is user-friendly for disabled people has been launched today.”

  • “The DRC report, The Web: Access and Inclusion for Disabled People was published in April 2004. It investigated the accessibility of 1,000 British websites and revealed 81% of websites (808) failed to meet minimum standards for disabled web access. The survey also found that the average home page contains 108 barriers that make it impossible or very difficult for disabled people to use.”
