This paper examines web accessibility compliance in a sample of universities in Thailand. The Thai government has made a commitment to higher education and e-learning and has also signed on to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). This paper shows that the web accessibility does not appear to be adopted by the universities examined in this study, with minimal compliance to the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. In particular, the Perceivable and Operable aspects of the guidelines seemed problematic in terms of the numbers of reported accessibility errors.
