    Exclamation Accessibility Analysis , Why we fail ?

    Dear Friends

    A very Good morning to you. I hope you are doing well and enjoying each moment of your life.

    I need your help in research i am doing on Accessibility Problems faced by disabled people around the world and webmasters concerns for implementing accessibility over websites

    About 97% of websites fail to meet the most basic requirements for accessibility.

    Global Statistics suggest that:

    * Worldwide, between 600 - 750 million people have a disability
    * 3 out of every 10 families are touched by a disability


    We are trying to find out why even after so may years of accessibility guidelines by W3C we are still not able to implement them in our websites.

    I shall be thankful to you if you can spare 5 min of yours and complete this survey for webmasters around the world.

    accessibility.questionpro.com

    I shall be happy to give accessibility analysis report for your website as token of thanks for completing this short 3-5 min survey.

    I thank you from core of my heart for sparing up your time in reading this long message.

    With Best Wishes for you and your family


    And I request to moderators , if it seems fine to you and if is within forum guidelines can we make this thread sticky ?

    Thank You

    I filled in your survey but found a few problems with it.

    Firstly under which areas do you implement you did not allow the selection of multiple specifications (especially when I make sure mine complies with all international standards), secondly you do not have an option for Freelancer (as many people are self employed web designers). Other than that I hope the results are useful to you.

    Hello Alex

    Thanks for sparing your valuable time , i am familiar with that specifications question , it is not possible to change it to multiple without loosing the data already collected .

    You could have filled that Freelancer option in OTHERS category , that will do.

    Thanks once again for your time , i will share with you findings of this survey as we complete this process in few days . It will be learning experience for all of us for sure.

    Have a great day.

    I tried to fill in your questionnaire, but unfortunately I ran into accessibility problems.

    Once I'd filled everything in and clicked the Submit button, nothing happened. Nothing, whatsoever.

    (Opera 9.64, Windows XP, Java, JavaScript and plug-ins disabled by default.)

    Hi , i just checked in backend , survey was started by you , but wasn't completed till the end. May be due to some error in website , Can you retry submitting the survey.

    I case you still have problems , just let me know.

    Thanks for your time

    One of the webmaster who participated in the survey gave us feedback , asking motive of the survey.

    This work is being done as part of university research on Accessibility

    What we are trying to find out from this.

    * Webmasters point of view of accessibility problem. Why webmasters are not able to take up and implement accessibility guidelines in all of their work.
    * What problems they are facing in implementing those guidelines?
    * Does tough project timeline and money put constraints for implementing accessibility?
    * Is knowledge of webmasters related to accessibility bottleneck?
    * Whose responsibility does they feel in implementing Accessibility ?

    I hope at the end of this process we shall be able to have answers to some of these questions.

    Incase you haven't participated in the survey yet. Please spare 3-5 min of yours.

    accessibility.questionpro.com

    Thanks for your time . Your comments and suggestions are heartily welcome.

    Of course it wasn't, because the Submit button was not working.

    The whole page is very badly written, with bloated markup, layout tables, invalid IDs (beginning with digits), ... 152 validation errors!

    I suspect that JavaScript is required for submission, but the code is such a mess that I don't want to spend the time required to track it down.

    I find it ironic that your survey to promote accessibility is ... inaccessible.

    Hello , I apologize for this , we used the facility provided by Question Pro Research sponsorship for making that survey page...and that was probably bad decision.

    I shall be happy to get response from your side by email or PM .

    Thanks for your support.

    AutisticCuckoo, irony is my favorite thing (next to puns and sarcasm).
