  1. Pesky People says:

    Approx 15% of Birmingham’s population are disabled so roughly 40,500 attending artsfest were Disabled or Deaf.

    So why is the above video not subtitled/BSL interpreted or audio described for such audiences?

    Artsfest 09 website also failed to provide any information on events that were British Sign Language (BSL) interpreted or information on Disabled access at each venue. Artsfest website itself doesn’t meet Level ‘A’ compliance for web accessibility.

    So at present the biggest arts event in Birmingham’s calendar is completely ignoring the needs of Disabled residents.
