The Most Violated WCAG 1.0 Guidelines by the Developers of e-Government Websites

M. Basel Al Mourad
Abstract—Most governments today are moving toward information society where e-Government websites are universally accessible by all citizens. Accessible websites means that people with disabilities can use the Web and the website developers must follow the WWW Consortium (W3C)‘s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). This paper seeks to examine the most violated accessibility guidelines by the developer of the web portals. For this purpose, we examined 21 e-Government websites. We identified and discussed the most violated WCAG. Our findings may raise awareness to the web developer about these violations and encourage them on how to build better and accessible websites.

Index Terms—Web accessibility, WCAG 1.0 checkpoint violation, disability, e-government.
