Accessibility.jpgThe British Standards Institution (BSI), sponsored by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) have developed a set of guidelines on how to make website more accessible for disabled people.

The guidelines called “Guide to good practice in commissioning accessible websites” (ref: PAS 78), have been developed to help any organisation comply with the UK’s Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

Complying with the DDA is a particularly grey area for website owners and web developers, so any guidelines are a bonus.

We’ve ordered our copy, so more feedback to come….

My only gripe is the accessibility of the report, if these guidelines are intended to become the standard in the UK, why are they currently unavailable in electronic format and why are organisations having to pay for it!
