If one stops to consider for a moment it is obvious that a website will be subject to issues such as the concerns of disability. A website should be capable of being accessed by someone with, perhaps, sight impairment. That may well mean the website must be designed in a manner so as not to exclude visitors with a disability. This requirement is, in fact, a matter of law and the source of that law is the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The date of the legislation should be noted because when it was introduced it did not contemplate the Internet and specifically websites as within its ambit. At that time whilst those in the new media sector were well aware of the Internet and its commercial potential, legislators were not.
