I am delighted to share with you that the HKU Libraries’ website, http://lib.hku.hk/, has taken its first gold award in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme 2015, jointly organised by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) and the Equal Opportunities Commission.
I would like to thank Technology Support Services’ Kenelm Ng and Andy Lau for all their efforts in making this happen and I would also like to acknowledge the help and support we received from Mr. Keny Yuen of The Hong Kong Society for the Blind.
The website’s accessibility features include:
- All operations can be performed through a keyboard interface for those who cannot access a website with a mouse.
- A “high contrast” version and a text re-sizing function are provided for visually impaired users to switch to read using a high colour contrast mode or resize the text up to two times the displaying text without loss of content.
- Captions are provided for videos for the hearing impaired users. The sound of videos can be easily turned off too.
- Clear and informative links are provided to facilitate those who have cognitive and learning difficulties.
The annual Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme has been held since 2013 to show appreciation to enterprises and organisations for making their websites accessible.To achieve the “Gold Award” in the scheme, the websites and apps have to meet all 24 and 18 judging criteria respectively listed under the Gold Category to incorporate basic and key web/mobile application accessibility features.
Congratulations to all involved for demonstrating our commitment to ensuring “inclusive and diverse physical and virtual environments”
