CUHK receives five gold awards (see table) in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme 2015 in the Website Stream and the Mobile Application Stream, and was voted one of 'My Favourite Websites'. The University was represented by Prof. Michael K.M. Hui, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of CUHK, in the award presentation ceremony which took place at the Central Government Offices on 13 April.

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

Commenting on the award, Professor Hui said, 'The Chinese University is very pleased to be recipient of the gold award in various categories. I believe that these awards will prompt us to work harder and aim higher in efforts related to web accessibility.'

The award presentation ceremony was officiated by Miss Ho Shuk-yee Susie, Permanent Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development (Communications and Technology), and well attended by representatives from award winning enterprises, NGOs, educational institutions and public sector organizations.

The gold award is the highest accolade in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme. It is presented to organizations whose websites and mobile applications have fulfilled 24 and 18 judging criteria, respectively. The 'Most Favourite Websites' is awarded to three from among all gold award winning websites in the past three years. Members of the public, including those from various user groups, are invited by the government to vote for their favourite websites.
