Katutandike - Let's Get Started - Transforming Lives in Uganda


Our aim is to make the Ka Tutandike website accessible to all, including those users with visual, cognitive, hearing or mobility impairments.

To this end, the site is compatible with adaptive technologies currently used to help people with disabilities to use computers. This includes screen reading/magnifying software, voice activated input software, and switch access.

To fulfil this objective, the Ka Tutandike site will comply with Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines. These are the definitive international guidelines for ensuring accessibility.

The guidelines are divided into three levels of compliance: Single-A (what you must do), Double-A (what you should do), and Triple-A (what you may do). Specifically, we are working on ensuring that the site complies with Double-A standard. This means we will meet all priority one and two checkpoints of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.

Some of the specific steps we are taking to improve accessibility include:

  1. To give images appropriate alternative text so that the information they contain is conveyed to those who cannot see them
  2. To make the text of links adequately meaningful so that their target is clear when they are read out of context
  3. To make the language of the text plain and easy to understand so that the pages have good readability
  4. To make text resizeable by users in their browser
  5. To provide subtitles or transcripts for video content so that the information it contains is conveyed to those who cannot hear it or see it
  6. To provide transcripts for audio content so that the information it contains is conveyed to those who cannot hear it
  7. To provide controls for interactive multimedia content so that its movement can be frozen
  8. To ensure that foreground and background colours contrast sufficiently so that information is conveyed to those who have difficulty distinguishing colours.
  9. To provide a sitemap to aid those who have trouble using the main navigation system

We continue to strive to improve our site. If you are an individual using adaptive technology and are having problems accessing information on the site, please let us know.
