Accessibility of state authorities’ websites. Report on study results

May 9, 2023

At the request of the United Nations Development Programme in Ukraine, a study to assess the level of basic web accessibility of 100 websites of the executive authorities and state registers was conducted from 15 October 2022 to 4 January 2023. 

The report details the most common basic problems with accessibility, and offers recommendations on how to fix them. It also provides a comparative analysis of the current and previous monitoring study results, to show whether web accessibility has improved over the study period starting from 2021. 

The report was authored by Dmytro Popov, an independent consultant on digital accessibility issues, and a specialist in digital accessibility at the NGOs “Resource Centre "Barrier-Free Ukraine” and “The National Assembly of People with Disabilities of Ukraine.” 

The study was carried out as part of the “Digital, Inclusive, Accessible: Support to Digitalization of Public Services in Ukraine” project, which is implemented by UNDP in Ukraine in partnership with the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine and with the financial support of Sweden.
