Level Playing Field, the live sport disability access and inclusion charity, have launched a survey for disabled football supporters to assess the accessibility of streamed matches.
The survey focusses on specifics such as the compatibility of streaming with assistive technology like screen readers or speech input so that people can talk to their computer instead of using a keyboard.
By completing this survey, disabled supporters can help shape how football websites and streaming services are operated.
The survey is available here.
The survey aims to help Level Playing Field and other organisations understand whether these streaming services are fully accessible for disabled supporters or whether improvements can be made. The results will be shared publicly and with service providers directly, with a focus on what can be done to improve.
There are many barriers that disabled people face in life, but most of these barriers can be removed through effective dialogue and good practice. Watching live sport is a huge part of many people’s lives and no one should feel excluded from this just because stadiums are currently closed. Supporters still have a passion for sport and streaming services need to be accessible to all fans.
The survey will be open until Friday December 18.
