I have been doing quite a bit of reading on the above and also DDA (UK). My question is....How much is this a major consideration? I appreciate what these orgs are trying to achieve but a lot of people in the industry who I speak to seem to take no or little account of this. DDA is a law in the UK not an option.
Re: w3c etc
Can u please give full form of DDA
Re: w3c etc
The DDA is the Disabled Discriminations act. This is a UK law which protects the rights of disabled people. One of the sections within this law is the right to goods and services and obviously this includes the inernet and technology, they are quite closely attached to the Royal National Institute for the blind (RNIB). I don't think that they make any specific suggestions for software development (I may be wrong) like W3C and the WAI. As a law tho I believe that it is something to adhere to and that the W3C guidelines are probably the best set of guidelines to follow to ensure this.
If you're UK based and want further info let me know and I'll post some links otherwise may jsut be something handy to know if you are considering coming to the uk to test in the future.
