CUHK receives three top honours in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme 2014, including a gold award each in the Website Stream and the Mobile Application Stream, and being voted one of the 'My Favourite Websites'. The University was represented by Provost Prof. Benjamin W. Wah in the award presentation ceremony which took place at the Central Government Offices on 14 April.

Commenting on the award, Professor Wah said, 'The Chinese University has made every effort in maintaining and enhancing our website accessibility since we received the Gold Award for the first time last year. We are happy to have received three top recognitions this year.'

The recognition scheme was organized jointly by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer and the Equal Opportunities Commission to encourage website accessibility among organizations in various industries and sectors, and to showcase corporations that have demonstrated outstanding efforts in facilitating access to their websites.
