Web Accessibility
Accessible Version
To ensure easy web browsing and information search, much attention has been paid to the needs of users with disabilities and the limitations of the most popular web browsers when we redesigned the HKEAA website. We are also committed to ensuring that we conform to the latest requirements of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA to the maximum extent possible.

Over the years, the Authority has been actively pursuing web accessibility design. We have won the 'Gold Award' in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme co-organised by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer (OGCIO) and the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) in 2014 and 2015. In 2016, 2018, 2020-2021 and 2022-2023, we have received the ‘Triple Gold Award’ in the Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme in recognition of our commitment to making online information available for all. Prior to the Gold Award, the HKEAA received a number of Web Care Awards organised by the Internet Professional Association (iProA) in from 2009 to 2012.

Webpage layout may differ between browsers, computers and operating systems. For the best viewing, we suggest that you use Microsoft Edge or the latest version of Google Chrome, Safari or Mozilla Firefox.
Screen Resolution
The HKEAA website is best viewed at a width of 1280 pixels.
Enlarged text size
Users can rescale the font size of this website with their browser’s re-scaling tool or through a set of buttons in the top right hand corner of every webpage.
The accessible version for the visually impaired is also provided with the same content presented in clear and systematic format.
Keyboard Shortcuts
Users who may be less adept at using the mouse, such as the blind or those with neuromuscular impairments, may need to use the keyboard without a mouse to browse a website.

This website was designed in a way that you can use the keyboard exclusively to access all features and content. For example, when you use the tab key, the cursor will move to all of the menus, hyperlinks or input boxes one by one in a logical order.

Some browsers also provide keyboard shortcuts that can make it easier to browse the website with your keyboard only. Lists of shortcuts for Microsoft Edge and Firefox are available through the following links.



AEL support project of Hong Kong Blind Union
The HKEAA is dedicated to adopting accessibility design for the corporate website. However, due to the nature of some of the contents, a number of files are presented in image format, including samples of candidates' performance in the HKDSE Examination. If you have difficulty in reading the images, you may contact the Hong Kong Blind Union for support.
