The purpose of this toolkit is to share a selection of tools and recommendations pertaining to the accessibility of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Based on international standards and a scan of available technologies, these tools and recommendations are intended to contribute to the social and economic inclusion of persons with disabilities by ensuring that information is equitably accessible.
The goals of this toolkit are:
- To outline the key international frameworks around digital accessibility and why it is critical for inclusion of persons with disabilities.
- To link people with tools, practice examples, free online training, and other resources so that their practice is digitally accessible.
- To ensure that digital accessibility is an inherent aspect of daily practice.
- To align the practices of those working with and for CBM.
This toolkit is intended to be used as a guide and practice resource by people working with and for CBM so that we produce accessible digital content and communications, and place accessibility at the centre of our ICT procurement processes. We hope that the toolkit will be a resource for the wider community of persons with disabilities, Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs), and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs).
