Mada Assistive Technology Centre launched e-Accessibility programme in coordination with government bodies. The project includes training web developers and designers, audits of the e-accessibility of government websites and putting in place remedial steps as part of a comprehensive consultation process.
Mada has worked to implement the policy by offering a series of services, including audits, consultations and training. These efforts have been carried out to fulfill center’s goal of empowering people with disabilities and elderly through greater access to information and communication technology.

This includes provision of accessible e-government services, online banking and other critical services to all residents and citizens of Qatar.
