Web Accessibility discussed on 'Click On' show (BBC Radio 4)

Here is an interesting radio article about the importance of Web Accessibility & the new Web Accessibility standard "BS 8878 British Standard For Accessible Websites".

The show is hosted by Simon Cox and is joined by LĂ©onie Watson (Nomensa) and Bim Egan (RNIB).

This is the show writeup from the BBC website:

"While ramps and lifts are now an everyday sight, enabling disabled access to public buildings, the vast majority of websites aren’t anything like as disabled friendly. Simon speaks to those behind a new British standard (BS 8878) for web accessibility hoping that with the right advice and encouragement websites will finally make themselves accessible to all. Or should we see the same use of the disability discrimination legislation to compel websites to comply?"
