Web Information Resources for Students with Disabilities: How Accessible are They?
Kurniawan, Sri H.
This study investigated whether World Wide Web information resources for students with disabilities are accessible and whether there is an accessibility difference between Web sites from the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, and Canada as rated by the Bobby automatic accessibility tool. Thirty academic Web sites from each country were tested. The analysis revealed that in general there was a higher percentage of accessible Web sites in the study than most of the results from other studies, but 48% of the sites were still inaccessible. The United Kingdom and U.S. Web sites were superior to the Canadian and Australian sites for major accessibility issues. The difference was less clear in minor accessibility issues. There was no significant difference in browser compatibility error across all originating countries. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/MES)
