An enquiry into the acceptance of accessible web content and web design standards by UK small businesses.

In late March 2006 I approached my tutor with a proposal that, with four weeks to spare, I would change my dissertation title. Only in time will I see if that was a bad decision The gamble paid off, and I achieved a 'first'. I have published the 9000 word text, plus all the associated statistics which I believe to be the only ones of their type in the UK to date (May 2006).

The dissertation approaches some key accessibility questions in the UK; do small businesses know that they are expected to provide accessibility and are they prepared to bite the bullet and shell out for an upgrade? There are also a few more findings and the statistics could be particularly useful if you are doing any work in the area yourself. If you want a one-page overview of the whole project including some key findings, you can read the abstract.

If you want to know who I am and why I did a study on UK SME access, then view the about page. In my personal opinion, if you are only going to read one thing it should be the discussion.
