What country is the most accessible in the EU?

EU member states have made a joint decision to apply WCAG. But how is the work progressing?

Funka has, on behalf of Handisam, a forerunner to the Swedish Agency for Participation, and the Funka Foundation, executed an audit of government- and parliamentary websites in EU member states. Is Sweden top of the class? Are there differences between old and new member states?
