Why don’t Companies do more?

Accessibility not taken seriously compared to issues such as privacy

We re-surveyed F100 websites to determine which have accessibility policies as these indicate a more serious commitment to the issue than if one is absent.

85 websites did NOT have an accessibility policy; while 92 had a privacy policy.  (IBM has a great example accessibility policy See: http://www-03.ibm.com/able/access_ibm/index.html)

Language is another possible accessibility issue and 35 of the sites had a Spanish language alternative, more than twice the number with accessibility statements.

Companies take privacy and providing access to the large and growing Spanish speaking market more seriously than they do providing access to the visually impaired.
