The activity was part of the department’s thrust in providing unhampered access to information even for those who are physically challenged. Ma’am Maria Elena Robosa, Officer In-charge, Electronic and Data Processing Division of DILG spearheaded the event and personally invited Esposa to conduct the seminar. Ma’am Robosa is also one of the regular attendees of National Council on Disability Affairs Sub-committee on Information and Communications Technology representing DILG.

Aside from DILG, some IT officials of Philippine Information Agency also participated in the seminar. Robosa hoped that their website would soon pass the web accessibility recommendations of PWAG. DILG’s website developers and content managers also expect the site would be accessible in time for the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation week celebration this third week of July.

DILG is the top level government agency tasked to supervise all local government units (lgu) from the provinces down to barangay level. It also advises the Philippine President all promulgation of policies, rules, regulations and other issuances on the general supervision over local governments and on public order and safety.
“Making DILG website accessible would serve as a good model for all LGUs to follow and duplicate.”, Ma’am Robosa said. For his visual evaluation, Esposa said that the DILG website has already complied with most of the accessibility recommendations except for the ALT text which is considered as a single most important aspect.
DILG’s official website is www.dilg.gov.ph while PIA’s website is www.pia.gov.ph.
