Approximately 20 to 25 percent of the population encounters Internet usage difficulties and may benefit from more accessible web content, according to a 2003 study by Microsoft.

The character is placed on sites that have made the necessary adjustments to make it accessible to people with disabilities. The purpose of placing the character is to promote public awareness of the Internet's accessibility and to inform the public of the site about its accessibility.
