View Full Version : Todayís website accessibility

06-19-2007, 06:49 PM
On the internet, there are many companies which breach UK laws concerning websites accessibility towards disabled people.

Due to the increasing amount of websites online, this means the overall problem is also increasing in size.

My name is Paul Cartwright and Iím a disabled person at The University of Salford, Iím currently developing an online web resource which will help web developers build simple static accessible websites and help in some way to reduce the problem among the Internet.

As part of the research, Iím asking people to help by completing my short online questionnaire (approx 2 Minutes), which will help me assess the views of the developers and users of the Internet.

Please would you help me with this research by visiting the link and completing my questionnaire.

The questionnaire can be found at:

Sorry about the long URL

I thank you in advanced,

Kind regards
Paul Cartwright

Also participated, but my inability to positively answer some of the questions on web accessibility raises - at least for me - some interesting considerations.

Admittedly I don't write sites for companies (I believe the 2004 amendment to the DDA only covers companies that offer a service online), but even in our non-commercial sites, how many of us make our websites more accessible to the disabled?

I also filled out the questionnaire. Hope it helps to make the internet a better place. :)

However, Iím concerned that this survey may not be representative and/or hijacked by some jackass as anybody can fill it out and put whatever she wants? Well, I hope thatís not happening. Good luck. ;)
