Awareness of other web accessibility guidelines - survey

David Sloan, Project Lead for the Digital Media Access Group at the University of Dundee, is looking for your input:

I’m conducting a short survey of awareness of alternatives to WCAG as part of some research we’re doing here in Dundee.

I’d be very grateful if you could take a moment to reply to me directly with your level of awareness of each of the 6 sets of guidelines listed below, each of which either partially or totally focuses on web accessibility issues.

Please reply to me at, using the following scale to indicate your level of awareness for each set of guidelines:

Level of awareness:

  1. I’ve never heard of them.
  2. I’ve heard of them but never read them.
  3. I’ve read them but never used them in my work.
  4. I’ve used them occasionally to inform my work.
  5. I use them regularly.


  1. Beyond ALT Text: Usability for Disabled Users (Nielsen Norman Group)
  2. Web Usability for Senior Citizens: 46 Design Guidelines Based on Usability Studies with People Age 65 and Older (Nielsen Norman Group)
  3. Research-based Web Design and Usability Guidelines (National Cancer Institute)
  4. Making your web site senior-friendly - a checklist (National Institute on Ageing and National Library of Medicine)
  5. Guidelines for Accessible and Usable Web Sites: Observing Users Who Work With Screen Readers (Theofanos and Redish)
  6. Research-derived web design guidelines for older people (Kurniawan and Zaphiris)

All data will be anonymised and the aim is absolutely not about measuring the competence and knowledge of the respondents!

Many thanks in advance for your help.
