Open to All? Nationwide Evaluation of High-Priority Web Accessibility Considerations among Higher Education Websites
Kimmons, Royce
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v29 n3 p434-450 Dec 2017
This study seeks to evaluate the basic Priority 1 web accessibility of all college and university websites in the US (n = 3141). Utilizing web scraping and automated content analysis, the study establishes that even in the case of high-priority, simple-to-address accessibility requirements, colleges and universities generally fail to make their sites accessible. Results should be used to determine reasonable and simple steps for moving toward accessible design in institutional websites, which is necessary to ensure that institutional resources can be open and useable by all.
