China web accessibility
China - Law on the Protection of Persons with Disabilities compliance
China passed a law in 1990, named the Law on the Protection of Persons with Disabilities, to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities. However, while pertaining to the public and private sectors alike, the legislation has no web accessibility standards as of today.
The Chinese government enacted updated legislation in 2008 that applies to government agencies and their web and mobile app content. Named the Voluntary Web Accessibility Standard, it stipulates the international WCAG 2.0 derivative as the digital accessibility standard for compliance, but as the bill’s name suggests, for the time being, it is a recommendation rather than a requirement under the law.
