Accessibility - broadly.
Access to the web by all is increasingly enshrined in legislation. This is especially true for people with disabilities, whose rights supranational organisations and their constituent countries are currently embedding in their legal frameworks.
The fact that legislators seek ways of mitigating the adverse effects of impairment on the ability to access the web is certainly worth of praise. Yet promoting accessibility only makes sense if the stock of knowledge is there to be accessed.
For access to information on the web to be truly universal it is not enough that disability barriers are mitigated or even removed altogether. It is just as important that the stock of knowledge is there to be accessed, which is not always the case.
Let us broaden the concept of accessibility by pressing the case for shared knowledge.
