Accessibility status of state government websites in India

July 18, 2016 • Srinivasu Chakravarthula

Today, it’s heartening to see there is so much momentum going on to make India inclusive, I thought, it’s important that websites of all state governments are accessible. As I am a believer that inclusion happens when there is awareness created among the stakeholders. So I have done a quick accessibility test using aXe extension for Mozilla Firefox. This test was run only on Home pages of each state government website and below are the results both in the form of a chart and a table. Data is made available in the form of table as well to make sure that results are available in case chart is not accessible to assistive technologies.

Gujarat Government’s website is found hosted on .com domain instead of .gov.in and reason is unknown.
