The second addition to the ICT Accessibility Progress Report, the CRPD 2012 ICT Accessibility Progress Report prepared by G3ict in cooperation with Disabled People’s International is a tool that has collected data on country laws, policies and programs related to ICT Accessibility and Assistive Technology from 52 countries of the world. The report highlights significant gaps in ICT Accessibility for persons with disabilities and the lack of compliance by the State Parties towards Article 9 of the CRPD.

It is essential for all stakeholders to know the actual progress made by ratifying countries towards ICT Accessibility to address the gaps and opportunities in their own countries. This report indicates that while most countries are usually aware of their obligation to implement ICT Accessibility, they have not yet translated basic and essential ICT based CRPD dispositions.
