Publication Date: 2005
Using Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine, a sample of higher education websites were retrospectively analyzed for effects that technology has on accessibility for persons with disabilities. The homepage and pages 1 level down were evaluated. Web accessibility barrier and complexity scores were calculated and analyzed. Results showed that higher education websites become progressively inaccessible as complexity increases through the years. Findings from this study such as this can lead to improvements in guidelines for accessible web design.
