Standards for governing accessibility in software systems were established over two decades ago, yet poor compliance continues to pose challenges for the individuals dependent on these systems. This project seeks to understand the relationship between compliance, awareness and attitudes of accessibility within the software development community.By understanding why software systems are not accessible, we can identify ways in which compliance can be improved. Individuals, regardless of ability, should be provided access to the same information and services as everyone.
