Dubbed “Making The Web Accessible to Pinoy PWDs”, the documentary video emphasized on the other aspect of accessibility, not just commonly thought of things like buildings, vehicles and schools. The video highlights access to information especially on online user experience.

In the 8-minute docu-video reported by Regina Enriquez, prominent web accessibility advocates and members of the Philippine Web Accessibility Group led by Rene Orense of ATRIEV School for the Blind and Julius Charles Serrano of Even Grounds gave their powerful insights. They enumerated various access barriers a PWD experiences in accessing the web. They also provided remedies and recommendations on how to remove those barriers.

Orense also explained the functions of PWAG and the volunteer work of its members in validating and monitoring websites in order to comply with the Web Design Accessibility Recommendations set by PWAG. To know more about Vera Files, visit their official website or their Official Facebook Page.
