British Waterways manages and cares for 2,000 miles of canals in the UK. The site is accessed by a diverse group of users and therefore needs to be easily accessible.
Accessibility Works provide a full site audit focusing on the already good accessibility options offered by BW. Many extra accessibility features were suggested to make it complient with the WAI Priority Three guidelines.
I was surprised that I knew so little about the complications of making a website accessible. I therefore found the report well detailed and informative, I also found the examples used very helpful.
