Muchos sitios web gubernamentales no son accesibles

Last month the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), a Washington, D.C., think tank, found that 42% of the 300 most popular government websites posed significant accessibility problems. The foundation assigned each website a score based on new rules that don’t take effect until January 2018 as its yardstick, so the webmasters have several months to shape up. But, “There’s a lot of room for improvement,” says ITIF’s Alan McQuinn, co-author of the report. 
“I don’t think it’s a lack of awareness or a lack of effort or lack of desire” when a government website has accessibility issues, says Bill Trefzger, deputy director of digital communications at the Department of Health and Human Services in Washington, D.C. Website developers and managers understand the importance of accessibility, he says, but logistical considerations can hinder good intentions.
