Accessibility Scenario in Internet for people with disability

About 18-20% of the global population suffers from some form or disability. 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

These are rather shocking numbers given the fact that the Web plays an important role and offers significant benefits for people with disabilities. It becomes utmost priority of ours to make web easy for them to use, as they can do their day to day work with much easy online rather then moving out. We as a blessed humans having no disability must understand this as our duty and work towards web a better place for people with disability.

This work has been taken with a motive to contribute some how in efforts of people who are trying to make life better for people with disability online.
