    I attended the Web Accessibility Forum in Pilvolcs this July 20. I am an observer- student of UP.

    I was impressed by the good organization of the activity.
    I did not get the host or organizers of this forum. I suppose it is NCDA.

    Question: What do you think should be the role of the private citizens in promoting the web accessibility for the pwds? Most citizens are not aware of this program. I think the abled should be informed of this thing too.

    The activity gave me the impression that the disabled can do as much as the abled. Everyone has his own strengths and weaknesses. We only have to enhance our abilities to the fullest.

    When did this web accessibility project start? Are the programs reachable?

    I learned in this forum that there is a computer school for the blind. Can a person with mental retardation enroll into a computer school? Let’s say with moderate to severe mr.

    Thank you for sparing your time on this.

    There was an overall group picture taking done after the Web Accessibility Forum last July 20 at Pilvolcs.

    I was one of those in the group.

    If I could be sent a copy of the picture thru email, I would appreciate it.

    Thank you.

    Good day! I’d like to ask for your assistance with regards to PWD invitation matter. Our school will be celebrating NDPR as well this year but we are having a hard time looking for PWD participants who can play basketball. If you could help us, please do reply to this post. Thank you! 🙂
