My concern was for a long time, for those who make it easier to travel, who are struggling with barriers and to facilitate an autonomous possible trips. The idea of the integrated approach of the Tour de sens matured during joint operations with members of the Blind and Visually Impaired Association Württemberg.

Your information and feedback to an organization can help increase the accessibility of websites for you and many other people who browse the websites.

Website owners want to improve rank of their webpage. Positive feedback is better than negative feedback. Many website owners and organizations don’t know about accessibility and don’t know how to make the websites accessible or are learning how to create accessible websites.

In many countries websites are required to be accessible by national policies.

The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities states that people with disabilities have a right to access information and services via the Internet.

Accessible websites provide benefits for website owners and for people without disabilities.

Most website accessibility problems causes bad website design.
