Yet, accessibility for all is still an issue. The'digital revolution' has not fully democratised access to online resources. One-tenth of the UK adult population is still affected by digital exclusion, according to a report by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). A recent survey of UK council websites published by Better Connected also found that 40% of local authority gov.uk website pages are not accessible to people with disabilities. This needs to be addressed by September 2019, when an EU Directive on the accessibility of public sector websites and mobile applications comes into force.
