The Philippine Web Accessibility Group releases its Official List of Accessible Websites in the Philippines as of October 2012.
These are the sites that were evaluated and passed PWAG’s Web Design Accessibility Recommendation and at the same time maintained its accessibility within the required time frame of more than three years.
As a government-mandated organization of web designers tasked to monitor and evaluated accessibility of websites, PWAG is duty-bound to publish and update the public about the status of government and non-government websites. PWAG is also tasked to monitor the compliance of websites previously evaluated as accessible.
The Complete List with clickable links is posted on the left sidebar of this official page. The list is divided according to the following categories:
- List of Accessible Websites – further categorized as Government and Non-government Websites;
- Delisted Sites – sites that were previously evaluated as accessible but recent revisions/overhaul made their sites fail in accessibility tests;
- Sites Already Shut Down – sites previously evaluated but are already taken down by their owners
Based on the list, there are nine government websites and twelve non-government sites which passed the web accessibility guidelines. Five sites failed in accessibility testing while two sites were discontinued by their owners. PWAG will try its best to update the list every two months.
Site owners are encouraged to copy and paste the Accessibility Seal on their websites to indicate that their sites passed PWAG’s Web Accessibility Recommendation. The logos can be downloaded here.
