|Yahoo! & Accessibility|
Yahoo! UK & Ireland is committed to ensuring that our sites do not present an obstacle to users of assistive technologies whenever possible. When a site or page cannot be made to correctly function with assistive technologies we will seek a reasonable alternative offering the same information and services.
We have a dedicated accessibility team at Yahoo! and work with a number of external agencies to improve our current and future products and services. These include:

They are also submitted to the following tests:
Our goal is to reach a stage where all new developments are submitted to this testing process.
In addition to these tests, many of the key areas of our service are specifically tested by blind, partially sighted, dyslexic and deaf users. The results of this testing are then fed back into our development process.
The Yahoo! network comprises several million pages, many of which have already attained a considerable level of accessibility. In order to continue this process of improvement, we would be very grateful to hear about any accessibility issues our users encounter with current products.
