Abstract: The Internet is extremely important for the publishing of information and for the interaction between the society elements. Due to this, it’s essential that the web presents itself accessible to all, including those with any kind of disability. An accessible web may help the handicapped citizens interact with the society in a more active way. This paper presents a study made with a universe of 777 Portuguese biggest enterprises, using a W3C referenced tool (SortSite), and presents some statistical results according to the Portuguese Classification of the Enterprises Activities. The achieved results present a serious troubled reality that’s preventing the disabled citizens from having the same access rights to the World Wide Web as the “non-disabled” citizens.
