Good practices for websites


2013-02-01
Logo UKE
Under the patronage of the President of the Office of Electronic Communications, "Good Practice Manual - WCAG 2.0" was published, developed by "Widzialni" Foundation. The publication explains how websites should be prepared to make them accessible for the largest possible number of digitally excluded users.

 

The first part of the manual, in a very clear manner, leads the reader through the world of people who are deprived of the possibility to benefit from the resources of the digital world for various reasons. It describes the way in which the Internet is used by the blind or partially sighted people, the deaf and the elderly, who are exposed in everyday life to the so-called digital exclusion.

The second part of the manual is addressed to web developers, administrators, editors and people who want to create websites according to the global WCAG standard (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines). It helps to build the websites in such a manner that the digitally excluded persons, including the disabled, are able to use them easily.

The manual is available free of charge in an electronic version on the website of "Widzialni" Foundation.

In May 2012, in Poland, Regulation of the Council of Ministers came into force which requires all public institutions to adapt their websites to the needs of the disabled and all those who cannot use the Internet resources in full for various reasons. Pursuant to the provisions of the regulation, websites should be adapted to the international WCAG standard (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines), recognised in many countries of Europe.
