LOGAN – WebAIM (web accessibility in mind) is part of Utah State University’s Institute for Disability Research, Policy & Practice. WebAIM was created to expand the potential of the web for people with disabilities.

And for the sixth year the WebAIM Million report, released this month, details accessibility to the world’s top 1 million websites.

The 2024 report shows the world’s top 1 million websites are still riddled with errors. The new report found an average of almost 57 errors per homepage among the world’s top million websites. That is more than the 50 found in the 2023 report.

Web accessibility in both higher education and the world at large was discussed by researchers, including WebAIM’s team, during the Cal State Northridge Assistive Technology Conference in Anaheim, California last month.

Research by WebAim Director Jared Smith and his team shows higher education has made significant progress in the field of web accessibility. The USU team found several data points from 2012 to 2022 that proved dramatic improvement in web accessibility.
