A recent study of Swiss administration and corporate sites says that out of 68 sites, only eight are fully accessible.
In their detailed study, based on the WCAG 1.0 Guidelines, they found the usual stumbling blocks:
- Complex table layouts don’t linearize
- Form elements must be clearly labeled
- Non-scalable text is unreadable
- Frames with useless names (“Left”, “Spacer Right”, “Top” etc) are, well, useless
To be fair, only seven sites were declared completely inaccessible; most of the sites were merely
very hard to use.
A detailed printed 64-page report is available in German.
