EQUAL ACCESS TO WEB

Written by European Disability Forum on .

""Open letter from 20 civil society networks, representing consumers, older people and people from a range of representative organisations of persons with disabilities strongly oppose Council’s proposals to water down the Web Accessibility Directive.

Web accessibility means that everyone – including people with disabilities – can use the internet independently to browse, navigate and interact. In 2012, the European Commission released a proposal for a Web Directive on the accessibility of the public sector bodies' websites. The proposal has been discussed at the European Parliament and at the EU Council.
