Retail sites fail accessibility test

An article from the BBC “Retail websites fail access test” discusses the lack on web accessibility in the largest retail web sites in the United Kingdom.

It was found that 30 of the UK’s most important retail web sites had significant accessibility issues. Here are some findings:

  • Only 3 terms and conditions pages achieved basic accessibility standards
  • 23 of the 30 web sites used search and navigational features that would not work without Javascript
  • 29 of the 30 web sites do not use shortcut links to enable people to navigate the page without using a mouse
