Accessibility in the News: April 2005

Wednesday, May 04, 2005

The major news item of the month is the DRC's announcement of a process that will lead to a British Institute Standard (PAS) in web accessibility. This is a follow-on from the dismal results of a web accessibility survey of 1000 websites done last year. This is encouraging news. The guideline seeks to inform website owners as to what is expected of them in terms of the Disability Discrimination Act.

Apple's new version of OSX, called Tiger, was released on the 29th April, so it looks like we'll have to wait until next month to see how Voice Over - the built in screen reader - fairs in the press.
