Resources on ICT/digital accessibility

ITU-Accessibility Resources

ITU’s Development Sector (BDT) work in ICT accessibility supports the advancement of the global disability-inclusive agenda and the development of inclusive digital communities. It does this through raising awareness, building capacity, and providing policy and strategy advice to ITU members. BDT is also facilitating joint working platforms such as Study Groups and regional “Accessible– ICT for ALL” knowledge development forums enabling stakeholders to share good practices and engaging in national and regional digital accessibility implementation. The goal of ITU Member States is to guarantee that all their citizens can benefit from digital information, products and services equally and equitably. Therefore, BDT is supporting members’ efforts in mainstreaming digital accessibility to ensure full and effective participation of everyone in the digital economy and also by developing and making freely available the resources indicated below.
