"Have you ever come across a web site that you could not access and wondered,"Am I the only one?" Herdict Web aggregates reports of inaccessible sites, allowing users to compare data to see if inaccessibility is a shared problem. By crowdsourcing data from around the world, we can document accessibility for any web site, anywhere.

 

Herdict Web is the first collaborative, real-time map of Internet accessibility and it needs your input.  You can participate in three easy ways:

  1. Test sites using our Herdict Reporter.

  2. Download the browser add-on to easily report on site accessibility while you browse.

  3. Add the Herdict Web Ticker to your blog or web site!

By participating, you can help us document inaccessibility around the world."

About Herdict

Herdict is a project of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. Herdict is a portmanteau of 'herd' and 'verdict' and seeks to show the verdict of the users (the herd). Herdict Web seeks to gain insight into what users around the world are experiencing in terms of web accessibility; or in other words, determine the herdict.

The brainchild of Professor Jonathan Zittrain, Herdict Web is a natural progression from the OpenNet Initiative. Whereas OpenNet views Internet filtering through an academic lens, Herdict uses crowdsourcing to learn about and present a real time view of the experiences of users around the globe."
