Making National Web Accessibility Guidelines for the Government of Bangladesh

The Access to Information Programme under Prime Minister Office has recruited me as National Consultant - Web Accessibility for persons with disability for developed the National web accessibility guideline.

Bangladesh Government has decided to make 24000 websites and 200 E-services which will be accessible for people with disabilities. I have been given the responsibility to ensure the accessibility features of all government websites. The above mentioned government decision came in line with Article 9 and Article 21 of UNCRPD and continuous advocacy by us.

If you are in a position to provide any technical support to ensure the web accessibility such as any reference materials, or any example of National web accessibility guideline where we can learn any key point of web accessibility, it would be highly appreciated!
