What do the US, UK, Denmark, Australia, Italy, Japan and India have in common? Yes, they all have legislation for web accessibility!
So I apologize if I’ve mentioned “Section 508” but not the other laws around the world. I didn’t realize until recently how much legislation exists. Hopefully the law will spread. Case in point, the US government has law to cover accessibility for federal web sites and other electonic media, but to my knowledge no states have passed legislation.
