Benefits claimants signing up for disability living allowance online are told they cannot use modern browsers, smartphones or even Macs.

The Department for Work and Pensions' microsite - available at www.dwp.gov.uk/eservice - states that folks should use it for claiming attendance allowance, disability living allowance and expats' state pensions from the public purse.

However, the microsite will not work with Apple Macs nor other Unix-based systems (such as Linux), according to the DWP itself. Neither is the site compatible with smartphones - or any Internet Explorer installation more modern than version 6, released back in the heady days of 2001.

read it ( especially the comments concerning "disabled access" and websites laws..true..the government site is in breach of it's own laws ) ..and weep..:)

Almost everything the British government does with regard to IT is a disaster. How did they manage to find someone who even could build an IE6 only system if they wanted to?
