General web accessibility guidance

General web accessibility guidance

BS 8878 Web accessibility - Code of Practice

In December 2010 BSI launched the first British Standard to address web accessibility and the challenge of digital inclusion.

The standard has been designed to introduce non-technical professionals to improved accessibility, usability and user experience for disabled and older people. It will be especially beneficial to anyone new to this subject as it gives guidance on process, rather than on technical and design issues. BS 8878 is consistent with the Equality Act 2010 and is referenced in the UK government’s e-Accessibility Action Plan as the basis of updated advice on developing accessible online services. It includes recommendations for:

  • Involving disabled people in the development process and using automated tools to assist with accessibility testing
  • The management of the guidance and process for upholding existing accessibility guidelines and specifications

PAS 78: A guide to good practice in commissioning accessible websites

This publication, produced by the The Disability Rights Commission and British Standards Institution provided guidance to organisations in how to go about commissioning an accessible website from a design agency. It describes what is expected from websites to comply with the UK Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA), making websites accessible to and usable by disabled people. Effectively this has now been superceded by BS 8878 (above) but the EHRC continue to make it available for archive purposes.
