WiderWeb was begun in 2003 to aid web site owners in adding accessibility to their web sites, to meet the requirements of the UK Disability Discrimination Act and supported by the DTI Research & Development Grant scheme. Understanding the W3C accessibility rules is a very complex undertaking and given usual resource constraints many companies struggle to address the issue. WiderWeb was designed to take this headache away, providing an easy to implement solution at minimal cost and inconvenience.
WiderWeb technology is now deployed primarily at simplifying usage of the Mobile Internet. The area remains at the first stages of development with very little browsing being attempted from the hundreds of millions of phones deployed across the world. Content adaptation and optimisation holds the promise of uniting the mobile web and mainstream web and thus generating a whole new way of using the 'One Web'.
