9,000 government websites to be made accessible by Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities
January 20, 2018
The Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities - DEPwD has started a project to make all the existing 9,000 government websites accessible for the use of people with disabilities.
As per reports, the DEPwD was forced to start the campaign as the work of making websites accessible was not being done fast enough by the state governments.
The Accessible India Campaign for universal accessibility was launched in 2015 and making all government websites accessible was a part of the project.
However, most states have not shown adequate response to the programme to make government websites accessible to the differently abled.
DEPwD has therefore initiated the process to make websites accessible with the help of ERNET - Education and Research Network under the under Digital India programme.
The project will initiate with the consent of state government, the second step is identification of commonly visited websites to make them accessible.
