Hi Peter Krantz

thanks for your site, I visited there and also follows some links, to me it seems most of those countries have guidelines only, though i didn't read thoroughly yet.

What i want to know is that, if there is any law that bound developer of web sites or software to make their product accessible for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) and if it fail anyone can sue in court or something like.

Software export might not give much importance to guidelines only untill they start losing their business then they will run around. before it happen here none cared about ISO 9000 etc., ever but when importers' countries demands this certificate all the exports showed interest.

if any of you have some information on it, any case i court , etc will help.
