How important is W3C WCAG Accessibility to your organisation (short survey)

In Australia, the federal government has just adopted W3C WCAG 2.0 and announced a transition timetable.

I’d like to understand how important organisations rate accessibility, if it’s policy, and current or future plans.

I have created a short survey with 7 questions at Click here to take survey, which will take less than a minute to take.

Alternately, just respond to this discussion and let us know if you are or will be compliant, or if it’s not on your radar.

I’d also be interested in the experiences of those of you who have been involved in developing accessibility compliant sites, and any tips or comments you have.

I’ll consolidate and pubish summary results in a couple of weeks.

    Really nice to see that the WCAG 2.0 announcement is leading others to think about web accessibility outside the government sphere.

    I work for Media Access Australia, and we are very keen use the government’s announcement to continue our work to increase awareness of web accessibility.

    A lot of the WCAG 2.0 criteria, particularly Single A and Double A is just good coding practice and can increase the usability as well as the accessibility of your website, and may also assist with SEO and the like.

    If you are incorporating some of the criteria into your coding practices, then accessibility often doesn’t add too much to the overall development process. Probably the most time consuming part is captioning, and that can be outsourced if an organisation has the funds.

    If you are looking for some information about creating accessible content, visit our website and click on ‘New Media’. We are in the process of adding lots more information to this section, so stay tuned for further resources. You can follow us at twitter if you like @mediaaccessaus. As W3C members, we are also happy to offer advice about web accessibility and WCAG 2.0.
