Hi Wink,

I don't think laws change that quickly, so 2010 is probably still valid.

I did find a 2013 list at Lainey Feingold's site:

Hi ATHEN-ites,

One of our A11Y colleagues is doing some research and ran into a blank in her online search.

Can any of you help fill in some of the blanks on this? Here is the inquiry. My thanks in advance.

"OK, #a11y tribe: After 30 minutes with Google that included answers like "out of date" and "we're planning..." (with a 2010 date stamp)...

Which countries actually have accessibility laws? If they have the laws, do they only apply to websites or do they go further?

Thank you :-)"
