Publicados los resultados de la tercera edición del estudio Web Accessibility Practitioners

 WebAIM ha publicado los resultados de la tercera edición de su encuesta dirigida a los profesionales de la accesibilidad web: Survey of Web Accessibility Practitioners #3 Results.

Los resultados contienen información demográfica muy interesante sobre los profesionales de la accesibilidad web. Respecto a la accesibilidad web en sí misma, los principales resultados son:

  • Mac OS is now the most common operating system. Chrome dominates with 63% of respondents reporting it as their primary browser.
  • Respondents are generally pessimistic about web accessibility progress over time with 87% indicating that accessibility has gotten worse or not improved over the last year.
  • 21% of respondents from corporations/industry reported receiving a lawsuit, threat of lawsuit, or OCR complaint compared to 39% of respondents (nearly double) from educational institutions.
  • NVDA (37%) and VoiceOver (35%) are the most commonly used screen readers for testing, compared to only 16% for JAWS (down from 37% in 2014).
  • Axe, browser developer tools, and WAVE are reported as the most commonly used testing tools.
  • 76% of respondents indicate that ARIA has made the web more accessible, though that sentiment is much lower among respondents with disabilities and with more accessibility experience.
  • A strong majority (67%) of respondents rate web accessibility overlays, plugins, or widgets as not at all or not very effective. Respondents with disabilities were even less favorable with 72% rating them not at all or not very effective, and only 2.4% rating them as very effective.
