Abstract

Web Accessibility is the concept that anyone, regardless of the disabilities or situation, should have access to the Web. Organizations such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) have developed guidelines outlining specific features that website developers and application developers can implement in their designs. The goal of this study is to determine the general knowledge that future Web developers have of Web Accessibility and to find out their perceptions of it. We want to find out where the biggest holes are in people’s knowledge and perception of Web accessibility so that future endeavors can be made to fill in these gaps.
