In Dec 2016, VocalEyes published this report of their survey. According to the survey: 

“27% of UK museums have no access information on their website. A further 43% have access information, but do not mention provision of any type for blind and partially sighted people. This leaves only 3 in 10 museums that provide access information online for blind and partially sighted visitors” [p7]
