Accessibility Interest in HTMLWG (11th March 2008)
Recorded interest has more than doubled from from 2% to 4.5% over the past 10 months.
- I did a case-insensitive substring match for “access”.
- I checked each match was being used in the sense of usability for disabled people.
- I counted each match being used in that sense for each section of the survey.
- I removed Participants I had already counted.

2 more Participants, reordered alphabetically by last name:
- Thomas Bradley
- Darren West
0 Participants in the other sections.
- 22 out of 494 Participants (4.5%) have recorded interest in accessibility.
At the previous count:
- 74 of 460 Participants (16%) answered the tasks survey.
- 9 of 74 answers (12%) recorded an interest in accessibility.
- Perhaps 12% were interested but only 9 had recorded that interest?
Applying that idea to the current numbers:
- 119 of 494 Participants (25%) answered the tasks survey:
- 22 of 119 answers (18%) recorded an interest in accessibility.
- Perhaps 18% are interested but only 22 have recorded that interest?
If this is true, interest has risen by 50% from 12% to 18% over the past 10 months.
WAI interact with HTMLWG. This count only includes Participants within HTMLWG.
Only 2% last time and 4.5% this time actually recorded an interest in accessibility.
Please include “access” in your entry to any section of that survey if you are interested in usability for people with disabilities. Then your interest will be included in my next count.
If you have no interest accessibility but your name is counted here, contact me and I’ll correct this entry.
