WAI Expanding Access Project:
Expanding Web and Mobile Accessibility in Low Resource Regions and Communities

About the Project

The WAI Expanding Access Project provided support for accessibility work at W3C WAI to broaden outreach and engagement on web and mobile accessibility for people with disabilities in low and middle income countries (LMIC), and in indigenous communities in developing and developed countries.

People with disabilities in low resource regions and communities and communities, including in developing countries and indigenous communities, have benefited less from progress on accessibility of digital technologies than people in more developed regions. The work aimed to address several factors that contribute to this digital divide, and to set a foundation for more equitable accessibility development in the future, through work that will enhance the overall quality of W3C WAI work, while also supporting the mission of W3C.
