Does accessibility stop you from watching TV?
Scope have released a report that found that 80% of disabled people have experienced accessibility issues with online streaming services. This is something we hope to change!
A blog by Kristina Barrick, Scope’s head of digital influencing, is featured on the website of TechUK, a leading membership organisation with more than 850 members.
Krissie writes: “Lockdown has been a stressful time for disabled people, who are being hit hard by the effects of the pandemic.
While lockdown begins to ease, many of the UK’s 14 million disabled people are still being locked out of the digital world.
Here at disability equality charity Scope, we are partnering with the tech industry through our Big Hack programme, encouraging businesses to put inclusive design at the heart of everything they do.
This week, we’ve launched a new campaign urging streaming services to improve their accessibility, and to be more transparent about how accessible they are.”
