Fix The Web was last night featured on the BBC Radio 4 show, In Touch.
Léonie Watson, Director of Accessibility at Nomensa, reported on the idea behind the site and outlined the process for people to report problems that they encounter with website accessibility.
Fix The Web is a marvellous collaboration between people with disabilities and web accessibility volunteers. It’s so easy to report problems with websites to Fix The Web, and the volunteers take the worry out of contacting website owners yourself.
You can hear the show on the BBC iPlayer (UK only, available for a limited time)
