Why always in USA – can Europe share pls?

One thing that has always concerned me is the way that most web developers I know in the UK are just not interested in Accessibility and the support, information and encouragement is not available.

There appear to be GREAT conferences and expos in the USA with some really notable speakers.  Some of the competitions like those for the  Knowbility ‘Accessibility Internet Rallies’  sound fantastic, but what support would they get in the UK or Europe?

It really appears (with a few exceptions) that the US is leading the way in promoting accessibility.  It is about time that everybody promoted accessibility!

There is so much that needs to be done (yes including changing this blog to a more accessible version – I am guilty too) but is it possible to start a real campaign targeting the UK and Europe?
