"National Tourist Organisations in Europe: Online Accessibility Benchmarking Report, 2011"

In 2011 ENAT made the first survey of the accessibility of 39 European National Tourist Organisations' websites. "Web accessibility" refers to the design and technical features of websites that determine whether people with physical or sensory impairments can actually read and use the site. A second survey has examined whether these websites provide accessibility information for disabled visitors, seniors and others with particular access requirements - and if so, what kinds of information they offer.

A slide presentation showing some of the survey results can be downloaded from the following link:
