One of the many barriers that persons with disabilities face in accessing employment opportunities is that many career sites and job portals do not contain accessible digital content and have not been designed and developed with ICT accessibility requirements in mind. Employers committed to inclusive employment need to be aware of this. Guaranteeing that job portals meet the necessary accessibility requirements is critical for persons with disabilities to enter and thrive in the labour market.
Cities, societies and communities are increasingly influenced by the evolution of technology. The term âsmartâ is frequently used to reflect technological progress. Additionally, the smart way to build our world is to ensure âSmart for allâ. This means being digitally inclusive and accessible for all people and empowering everyone through Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) regardless of their gender, age, ability or their context of use.
ICTs for better ageing and livelihood in the digital landscape
Every day we see how Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) impact our lives and participation in society by the way we work, learn, purchase our goods, listen to the news, or communicate with one another. Access to information is a fundamental human right. Our world is digital, and most of the information we receive is through digital platforms, such as websites. For this reason, web accessibility has never been as crucial as it is today. The accessibility of websites is key to ensure equal and equitable access for all people to ICTs and their related products and services.
