Survey Results: Web Accessibility Practitioners

September 2014 – The Web Accessibility in Mind (WebAIM) Survey of Web Accessibility Practitioners results are now available. Conducted in July 2014, the survey collected data from 900 respondents within the web accessibility field. The survey focused on practitioner demographics, roles, technology preferences, certifications, and various other aspects of web accessibility efficacy.  Some of the details of the survey findings include:

  • Professionals in the web accessibility field are generally better paid and better educated than those in broader web design and development.
  • Women and people with disabilities are represented in a larger amount than in other technology fields.
  • 41.5% of respondents without disabilities use Chrome compared to only 16.6% of those with disabilities.
  • The screen readers used by web accessibility practitioners differ from the general screen reader user population.
  • There is a disparity between what motivates web accessibility practitioners and what they say motivates their organizations to implement accessibility.
