JUPAS Website Wins Triple Gold Award in Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme 2020 – 2021
The JUPAS Office is pleased to announce that the JUPAS website has won the "Triple Gold Award" in the 2020 – 2021 Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme (Scheme) organised by the Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited (HKIRC). This is the third time that the JUPAS website has won a "Gold Award" in this Scheme. The Scheme is co-organised by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) with the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) serving as the independent advisor. The Scheme was set up to recognise and award the websites of commercial and non-commercial organisations which offer such features as equality of access and ease of use.
The award-winning JUPAS website fulfilled 24 judging criteria required by the Gold Category which offers such features as a user-friendly design, compatibility with Screen Readers, cross-browser compatibility, basic and key web accessibility features, and a customised programme-search engine. The website is monitored and reviewed regularly, and continually improved to serve the evolving needs of JUPAS's stakeholders.
