Online access: small business owner tackles banks
September 1, 2003 (SMH)
The owner of a small business in Melbourne has taken up the issue of online accessibility with two financial institutions after he had difficulty using the online banking facilities provided by the two organisations, even though he was using a standards compliant browser. http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/...268517406.html
Well all you have to do is visit some banks or newspaper sites or some e-commerce stores using a standards compliant browser and if the site doesn't work then you should complain. Enough complaints from enough people will make a difference.
