The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has received 16 awards at the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme 2020-21, including ten Triple Gold Awards and six Gold Awards.

The 2020-21 award presentation ceremony was held today (14 April). Representatives from award winning departments from the University attended the ceremony to receive the awards.

The recognition scheme was organised by Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited (HKIRC), co-organised by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) with the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) serving as the independent advisor, to encourage web accessibility among organisations in various industries and sectors, and to showcase corporations that have demonstrated outstanding efforts in facilitating access to their websites and mobile applications.

Awards are given to websites and mobile applications which have fulfilled a number of judging criteria. These criteria include meaningfully sequenced and structured contents, clear headings and informative links, and high compatibility with assistive technologies to facilitate smooth navigation. The colour contrast of text and images, the font size options and the use of sign language should address the need of all users including people with disabilities and seniors.
