Cyprus has also signed the Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities
and Article 9 sets forth the obligation of the country to ensure
accessibility of the Internet.  Once the convention is ratified, it is
possible that there may be more legislation to address this.

Hi Christophe,
> Does anyone know anything about legislation regarding the accessibility of
> websites (including intranets) in Cyprus?

in the url http://www.springerlink.com/content/mvn71d4texw7a7rq/ you can
find the publication:
Website Content Accessibility of the Cyprus Domain
with e-mailaddresses of the authors.

Perhaps is it possible to ask information about accessibility legislation in
the website of AKEL
http://www.akel.org.cy  the most important political party on Cyprus in this
