Abstract

This article analyzes the degree of accessibility of the websites of the Spanish local administration for people with disabilities in the context of the Transparency Law of 2013. We present 16 indicators that measure the access to information by users with sociodemographic limitations or physical disabilities, which were applied to the websites of the 62 Spanish municipalities with more than 100,000 inhabitants. The results show that the Spanish local administration does not fully allow the digital empowerment of these citizens, hindering their right of access to information and accountability.
