There are a very large number of websites, both in the public and private sector, that are not fully accessible.
The reasons for this sad state of affairs include:
The OneVoice for Accessible ICT Coalition, of which I am a member, recognised these issues and decided to address the complexity issue with a new initiative, 'First Seven Steps to Accessible Websites'.
The overwhelming complexity can be overcome by providing a set of small initial steps that an owner can take that will improve the accessibility of the website and create a roadmap for future steps.
The initiative will be formally announced, by Nigel Lewis and myself, at e-access 11, 28 June in London. Please come along and hear the announcement and have a chance to see the accompanying website.
