Philippine Web Accessibility Group

Posted May 9th, 2007 by Blair Millen

Philippine Web Accessibility Group site The Philippine Web Accessibility Group site proves to be a solidly built and easily navigable site. Great attention has been paid to making the site accessible with clean markup, a breadcrumb trail and extended image descriptions. However, some areas fell short of best practice, including poorly chosen alternative text, badly styled links and no custom error pages.

With the great effort that’s gone into delivering an accessible site it looks like the design has suffered as a consequence. There’s some nice touches, like a smart logo and the bold contrasting colours of black and gold but overall the aesthetics are a little drab; those blue links on grey background just don’t work.

The Philippine Web Accessibility Group website was crafted by Jojo I. Esposa Jr and following review was deemed eligible for an Award Level of: “Notable Universal Design Award [!].” Congratulations Jojo!

    Thank you very much guys! It’s truly a great honor to be noticed and awarded by Accessites.org! However, please do help me on correcting the errors that you’ve mentioned like, “some areas fell short of best practice”, “including poorly chosen alternative text”, “badly styled links” and “no custom error pages”. I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks again Team Accessites and GAWDs. More power to all of you. I’m sure our Filipino members of Philippine Web Accessibility Group would definitely be happy about this achievement. :-)
