Inaccessible Websites: Time to Act!
07/06/2015 See our latest news on the web accessibility directive
The European Commission pledged to make all public websites and websites providing basic services to citizens accessible by 2015. Unfortunately, progress towards this target has been far too slow. EBU is disappointed about the fact that EU Ministers have not held any meaningful discussions on this directive since June 2013.
Time is up!
92% of Members of European Parliament voted for a strong directive on accessible websites and online services last February. EBU now want EU governments to make completion of this Directive a priority for the forthcoming Italian Presidency.
