The *KICTANet Digital Accessibility* team in their pursuit of ICT
accessibility and equality for persons with disabilities, conducted an
assessment of the *Accessibility of Kenya Government Websites to Persons
with Disabilities* and developed a scorecard.
The purpose of conducting the assessment is to influence persons with
disabilities access to ICTs, their lived experiences, and their input
towards ICT policy in Kenya.
It is important that information posted for public consumption reaches and
remains the same for all. This is to promote equity and equality in access
to information and online services. A basic human right
provisioned in the Constitution of Kenya 2010, Article 35.
The report (available in this* link <www.kictanet.or.ke/reports/#>*)
provides the scores and ratings of the Kenyan public websites (in reference
to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C) proposals) and recommendations.
