What is the current state of web accessibility?

Bailey, J. and Burd, L. (2006) 'What is the current state of web accessibility?', in Proceedings of the Eighth IEEE International Symposium on Web Site Evolution, WSE '06 : Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, September 23-24, 2006. Los Alamitos, CA: IEEE, pp. 69-74.


Two studies were conducted, focusing on the perceptions and current state of Web Accessibility. It found a strong trend towards Content Management Software, and considerable differences between how those who specialise in accessibility and those charged with web maintenance assess and perceive accessibility. Both studies also revealed that there is very little awareness of web accessibility issues and commitment of resources in many organisations. Recommendations are made for more training, especially for management.
