The Centre for Excellence in Universal Design in Ireland has developed a very useful resource for web developers and website managers.
To find out how to improve the accessibility of a website you must establish its current level of accessibility. A web accessibility audit measures the accessibility level of your website against accessibility standards. It should lead to a list of actions to make your site more accessible to all users.

The title of this research paper is “DREAM work package: Monitoring the Implementation & Enforcement of eAccessibility law and policy at the Member State level”
E-accessibility refers to the design of information and communication technologies that are usable by persons with disabilities. The principle aim of this study was to identify how different intermediaries (e.g., policy approaches, participatory processes and commercial incentives) impact the monitoring, implementation and enforcement of e-accessibility policies. DREAM is the acronym for a group of member states interested in this endeavour. The findings revealed:
- The need to develop an international procedural standard
- The need for a web accessibility professional association
- The need for a procedural accreditation
