Government Department To Open Its Website To Non Computer Users

The website of the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport has been made available by telephone to people without access to a computer. The DCMS claims to be the first Government department to do so.

Culture secretary, Tessa Jowell, said that “the blind and partially-sighted will benefit too. Only one in ten of this group are computer users so a huge number will now be able to access information about what we are up to, and how we spend the public funding we receive.”

Is telephone access a better alternative to assistance software for accessing Web sites? Discuss the Accessify forum.
