User experience consultancy User Vision has just completed a long term contract to make Abu Dhabi government websites more accessible.

The project, part of the Abu Dhabi Government Modernisation Initiative, was the first of its kind in the region and underlines the government’s active interest in web accessibility and improving the accessibility of e-government services to people with special needs.

User Vision worked with local partners Flip Media in Dubai to assess websites in both the English and Arabic versions. The project will raise awareness of best practice for web accessibility within the Abu Dhabi Government departments and within the community so that the widest possible audience has access to e-government services and information.

Chris Rourke, managing director and founder of User Vision, said: “We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with the Abu Dhabi Government on such a prestigious and innovative project. The Abu Dhabi government is committed to improving accessibility for all its citizens, including those with disabilities throughout the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and it is a privilege to be part of such an important initiative.”
