Microsoft’s and Europe’s Joint Initiative on Web Accessibility


Microsoft joined the European Disability Forum (EDF) in Brussels to discuss how the business, government and private sectors can contribute to making web accessibility a staple in Europe. Among the initiatives that already are underway include:

  • The goal of making 100% of public websites accessible
  • Accessibility resources available on the Microsoft website
  • A Web Accessibility Handbook for European countries
  • A guide for governments on how to resolve accessibility issues
  • Schipol Treaty, an agreement among Dutch companies to prompt change regarding Internet accessibility
