Re: Stats on keyboard-only users

Is anyone on the list involved with the survey below?


If so, is it possible to get a number associated with "lack of keyboard accessibility" from the section at the above link? To me that number (x/1792) would suggest a percentage of respondents that rely heavily on the keyboard (IE - as a person that doesn't rely heavily on using the keyboard for navigation, I'm not going to report it as a problem). I think that could be a good starting point.

Just a thought.

Subject: [WebAIM] Stats on keyboard-only users

I recently had a meeting with upper management to discuss the importance of expanding the reach of the accessibility program here. An Executive VP asked me what percentage of people rely on the keyboard for navigation (with or without a SR). I'm having trouble finding this data. Does anyone know?
