I’m very proud to share that Standard Web Standards was recently recognized by a body comprised of government agencies and non-government organizations for its web accessibility features.
The Philippines’ National Council on Disabiliy Affairs, National Computer Center of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology, Vision Office Support Services Ltd. and the Philippine Web Accessibility Group gave several websites commendations during the form function & class Web Conference last July 10, 2009. Plaques were presented to the website owners for including accessibility features, and promoting web standards, usability and accessibility.
The other websites that were recognized as “disabled-friendly” were:
- http://www.philcecnet.ph – Official Philippine E-center Community Portal of the National Computer Center represented by Dr. Angelo Juan Ramos (Government)
- http://www.blinding-light.com – Personal Website of Ms.Miko Reznor (Anna Monica Esguerra)
- http://www.lilianefoundationphil.org – Official Website of Liliane Foundation Philippines represented by Sis. Agnetia Naval, National Coordinator (Non-government Organization)
Awardees (from left): Regnard Raquedan, Eloisa San Mateo, Sis. Agnetia Naval, Anna Monica Esguerra, Jojo Esposa of PWAG and NCDA Executive Director Geraldine Ruiz (seated)
I’d like to thank the agencies for the honor and recognition of the extra effort I put in to make my blog more accessible. ðŸ˜€
