Abstract [en]

Principles and guidelines will become more important, due to the development of accessibility policies and the harmonization with Europe in Sweden is discussed. Public policy is the body of principles that underpin the operation of legal systems in a state, which address the social, moral, and economic values that tie a society together. Accessibility policies often start at the international level. Many countries currently have different regulations for interface accessibility. In Sweden the transparency of the public sector is one of the foundations of democracy and the development of an accessible society and is manifested by a duty to publish and promote openness. Public policy and legislation play an important role in contributing to increased accessibility. Sweden is a country of negotiation and transparency, not binding legislation. Involving groups with impairments may not only provide increased accessibility but also increase innovation.
