Yes, in Europe there is legislation regarding the accessibility of websites for people with disabilities, similar to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the United States. The most important legislation in this area in Europe is the European Directive on the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of public authorities (EU Directive 2016/2102). This directive sets requirements for the accessibility of websites and mobile applications of government bodies and some public organisations.

The EU Directive requires that government agencies' websites and mobile applications comply with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 at AA level. This means that they must be accessible to people with different types of disabilities, including visual, auditory, motor and cognitive disabilities.

In addition to this directive, some European countries also have national legislation and regulations regarding the accessibility of websites. For example, in the United Kingdom there is the Equality Act 2010, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability and also applies to the accessibility of websites.

It is important to note that the specific legislation and requirements may differ per country within Europe. It is advisable to consult the relevant national legislation and guidelines depending on the specific country you are interested in or operate in.

And you can already prepare yourself for an extension of this law to make all websites accessible to everyone.
