Gold Award in Web Accessibility Recognition 2015

Prof Brian MAK and his research teammates, Prof Tim WOO (ECE), Albert WONG (ECE), Mr Dongpeng CHEN (PhD candidate), and Mr Kobe LAM (Research Assistant), received the Gold Award in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme in two consecutive years.

The team has further developed 「聰鳴語音工具箱」, an Android mobile application for hearing impaired children. The application helps enhance students' learning in Cantonese pronunciation by applying engineering knowledge to the community. It is the second application developed by the team for hearing impaired children.

The Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme is co-organized by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer and the Equal Opportunities Commission since 2013. The scheme aims at recognizing the enterprises and organizations for adopting effective designs in websites and mobile applications to facilitate access by everyone including people with disabilities.

The two Android applications can be downloaded from Google Play:

  1. Auditory Training App 「精靈小耳朵」
  2. Auditory and Articulation App 「聰鳴語音工具箱」
