Thanks to Henny over at the RNIB Web Access Centre Blog for

this piece of news

and see my comment for my positive but garded reaction.



is accessibility of local authority sites really getting worse?

April 21, 2008

I see lots of interesting news items on the Web but try to avoid the temptation of re producing articles that I see on multiple other sites and Blogs, that’s my excuse for the scarcity of postings anyway… But so far I haven’t seen this interesting supplementary report from SOCITM doing the round.  a world denied explores possible reasons for the apparent backward step in the accessibility of local authority Websites.  So far I haven’t looked beyond the headline myself but you can bet it’s a critique of technical conformance methodologies.  But if you will measure conformance to a benchmark that is 9 years old …

that said, I look forward to coming back to edit this post when I’m proved wrong.
