- MAKING EMPLOYMENT ACCESSIBLE FOR PEOPLE WITH ANY KIND OF DISABILITIES
- A SOLUTION AFTER DECADES OF YEARS IS COMING
The Meaning of Web Accessibility Initiative;
The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) defines digital accessibility as the following: “Web accessibility means that people in disability situations can use the Web. More precisely, they can perceive, understand, browse, and interact with the Web, and contribute to the Web. The accessibility of the Web also benefits others, notably the elderly population whose abilities change with age.
Web accessibility includes all disabilities that affect access to the Web including visual, audio, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities. Accessibility equally includes people having any problem with computer hardware (very slow speed, old computer, lack of knowledge of the use of computer tools, etc).
The solution is how we bring people with disabilities into contact with employers and thereby improve their quality of life by participating in society with a job or starting a business
RoomForWork Enterprise has a solution to bring people with disabilities into contact with employers through digital accessibility technology where job seekers with disabilities (mentally/physical) can be matched autonomously and intelligently with vacancies/projects or Gigs from clients via AI matching technology
Soon more information about how our project connects to these forgotten people
