Hi all,

This BBC story discusses a survey on accessibility for people with disabilities, highlighting the huge accessibility problems for the world's 600 million people with disabilities, or 10% of the world's population. 80% of this group lives in developing countries.


'Most websites' failing disabled
Most (97%) of the leading websites around the world are failing to provide the most basic accessibility standards for people with disabilities.

The survey was across 5 sectors in 20 countries.
