Hi Justin and all,

For further information see the UN Press Release [1], and Nomensa's site
[2] (they undertook the study).

I'm told the full report is still undergoing final review, but will be
available shortly.

Interesting story...  Apparently the United Nations commissioned a study
and found that 97% of web sites are still inaccessible.

I don't know how accurate the study is; regardless it shows that we have
a lot of educating and outreach yet to be done.

Cheers,
