Campaign Status

Ongoing Offline: The campaign is currently ongoing offline and, thus still in the process of collecting funds. 

Summary

The campaign aims to create an accessible site that can be used by different categories of disabled people and to inform and educate interested parties about disability, universal design, and the rules for ensuring universal design.

Challenge

Despite advancements in technology and awareness, there remains a significant lack of accessibility in digital platforms for individuals with disabilities. Many websites fail to accommodate diverse categories of disabled users, thereby excluding them from valuable information and services. Additionally, there is a general lack of understanding among the public about disability issues and the importance of universal design principles in ensuring inclusivity. This gap in knowledge and accessibility underscores the urgent need for a project that aims to create an accessible website while also educating stakeholders about disability and universal design principles.


Solution

Establishing an accessible website represents a fundamental step towards ensuring inclusivity and equal access to information and services for all individuals, regardless of their abilities. By adhering to accessibility standards and implementing features such as alternative text for images, keyboard navigation, and clear, easy-to-read content, the website becomes navigable and usable for people with various forms of disabilities, including visual, auditory, motor, and cognitive impairments.


Moreover, beyond its immediate usability benefits, an accessible website serves as a catalyst for promoting the concept of universal design. Demonstrating the practical implementation of accessibility features and principles, it educates both creators and users about the importance of designing environments and products that accommodate diverse needs from the outset.
