Problems With London 2012 Olympics Australian Web Page

The Australian Olympic Committee have provided a London 2012 Olympics Education Page, for students. Unfortunately, the page suffers from some problems with the web design. There are 20 Problems reported by the TAW Automated Accessibility test. The W3C mobileOK Checker scores the page at 0 out of 100, for compatibility with mobile devices. Also there are 5 errors in the HTML markup reported by the W3C Markup Validation Service. These problems may make access for those with a disability and those using a mobile device more difficult. None of the problems would be difficult to fix. In 2000 the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission (HREOC) found that that the Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games website was inaccessible, under the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act.
