Abstract

People with disabilities continue to be at a disadvantage in terms of opportunities on the Web. Federal laws and state policies help govern website design for federal and state agencies, but their impact thus far is unclear. This paper addresses the issue of web accessibility. A survey was developed and administered to web designers to discover their knowledge, attitudes, and actions taken regarding making pages accessible. The results of these studies are presented in this paper.
