Project complete! Inclusive access to Internet services and information for persons with disabilities in Bangladesh

Handicap International – Humanity & Inclusion sought to improve the Internet experience for people with disabilities in Bangladesh – and it was important that people with disabilities were involved in every step of the project planning and implementation.

Below, you can see the proposal video submitted a few years ago by Vashkar Bhattacharjee who worked with the HI Bangladesh team.

That project is now complete – and it involved a laundry list of tasks. The project created web accessibility guidelines for web developers in Bangladesh, tools for performing accessibility audits, a training manual for educating persons with disabilities and built the skills of 100 persons with disabilities on the use of screen reading software to access web platforms, applications and services.
The project also worked with the government on improving key websites.
