The government of Norway is planning to fully implement the principles of Universal Design by 2025. Universal Design helps counteract discrimination against people with functional impairments while improving surroundings for the entire population. It emerged from earlier barrier-free concepts, the broader accessibility movement, and adaptive and assistive technology and also seeks to blend aesthetics into these core considerations. The Ministry of Children and Equality is responsible for coordinating the government’s efforts. The plan includes measures that reach across the policy areas of 16 ministries, focusing on issues related to outdoor planning, buildings, transport and ICT. “We are using the strategy of Universal Design to bring about community features that benefit all of our inhabitants as well as Norway as a society,” says Minister of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion Audun Lysbakken. The Norwegian government’s main goal for its ICT policy in general is to have an information society that is for everyone. The fact that large parts of society use digital solutions means that the consequences of being excluded are greater, and this particularly applies to the elderly and people with disabilities. Trying to reduce this digital gap therefore is an important goal to achieve. Fully accessible websites may contribute to this goal. One way to accomplish this is integrating text-to-speech on websites. With this functionality people that have difficulties reading can have the text of the website read aloud to them.
