Study on e-accessibility published by the European Commission

The European Commission has now published the results and conclusions from an empirica led cross-country study on e-accessibility. The main aims of this research were to take stock of the extent of e-accessibility across the EU27 countries and some third countries, as well as the policy efforts that have emerged in this area. The focus was on e-accessibility in three key domains: web, telecoms and TV.

The study was conducted by an international consortium of research organisations led by empirica, including the Work Research Centre (Dublin), Funka Nu (Stockholm) and Technosite (Madrid). A wealth of country specific data was collated in 31 countries with help of a network of national correspondents.

The final outcome report is available for downloading at the European Commission’s ‘Digital Agenda for Europe’ web site (
