DTI follows the Guidelines for UK Government Websites which mandate Level A of the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. DTI aims to go beyond this by meeting the AA standard, along with those elements of AAA which are considered best practice. However, neither the Government Guidelines, e-Accessibility communications from the European Union or advice from the RNIB have ever suggested that government websites should attain and maintain the whole of Level AAA.
We do recognise importance of ensuring all of our web content is accessible to all our customers, regardless of disability, level of technology or other factors. We therefore strive to build accessibility and usability into all our websites, from commissioning the initial design to the ongoing maintenance.
