Many Corporate Web Designers "Don't Get It" When It Comes To
January 20, 2004
LONDON, ENGLAND--Nearly 90 percent of the United Kingdom's 100 top corporations fail to make their Internet Web sites accessible to users with disabilities, the London Register reported Tuesday.
A review by the consulting firm Nomensa found that many corporate Web sites are built with no consideration given to basic accessibility standards. As a result, information on these sites is very difficult -- in some cases, impossible -- for people with disabilities to use effectively.
A report a couple of weeks ago revealed that more than 30 percent of the top 100 corporations are "woefully inadequate" when it comes to designing effective, accessible Web sites.
