Disability rights activists say website of Nagaland Public Service Commission is not accessible
April 19, 2018
The Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) website has been slammed for not adhering to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
Disability rights activist, Diethono Nakhro, has said that the NPSC website is completely inaccessible to disabled people.
In a letter to the NPSC secretary, Nakhro said that while the NPSC has made efforts to improve service delivery in the state, it has bypassed people with disabilities.
Under the Sugamya Bharat initiative, 50% of government websites have to be made accessible by 2019.
In her letter, Nakhro has asked that the documents that are going to be published online must also be made accessible.
