What happens when there is a terrorist attack or a natural disaster? These days, some people might immediately turn to their 24-hour rolling news channels on television, but many of us would naturally look to the Internet.
However, if you were looking for instructions on how to deal with the disaster, you might find yourself at a loss. Further, what if you had a disability that made some websites a trial to navigate?
A recent global United Nations report has found that only three percent of Web sites are accessible to persons with disabilities.
So the next time you hear your manager belly-ache about the cost of making your site accessible, perhaps its worth shoving those figures under their nose.
