Digital Accessibility Workshop Jakarta

‹ Back

According to the United Nations, it is estimated that one in six people (in Asia and the Pacific) live with disability – that is a total of 650 million people. Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) often face barriers that restrict them from participating in society on an equal basis, including the access to, and use of, information and communication technologies (ICTs). To name a few, these barriers include none or very little attention to including accessibility features for online content (including websites), limited adaptability in functionality of products and services, and weak policy frameworks to support the provision of an accessible digital environment – being online has become a core part of life today.

Internet Society (ISOC) Asia-Pacific Bureau in collaboration with ISOC Indonesia Jakarta chapter is organising a workshop, in cooperation with local partners, dialogues and awareness on digital accessibility and possible actions to remove technology barriers faced by PWDs.
