Information and communication technology (ICT) accessibility for persons with disabilities is a priority for ITU members. At the 2014 World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC-14), ITU members recognized the need to ensure that the more than one billion people living with some form of disability can use ICTs in order to empower them to reach their full potential.
To assist governments and other stakeholders around the world address key issues in promoting ICT accessibility, ITU and the Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs (G3ict) published the Model ICT Accessibility Policy Report.
The Model ICT Accessibility Policy Report is designed to be a tool for national policy-makers and regulators to create their own ICT accessibility policy frameworks.
The Report offers concrete solutions for ITU members and all relevant stakeholders as they strive to implement successful national ICT accessibility policies.
It supports ITU members in the realization of the Connect2020 Target on the creation of an enabling environment for accessible telecommunications/ICTS for persons with disabilities. With this report ICT accessibility can become a reality.
