How we test the gov.ie site
How we are going to improve accessibility on gov.ie
- we are going to make photo-descriptions mandatory on gov.ie and carry out regular spot-checks on photos across all departments on a quarterly basis
- we will continue to work with departments to make sure they are publishing HTML pages instead of less accessible formats like PDF
- we will continue to insist that departments use plain English to describe services members of the public will rely on
