Making Naukri job portal accessible for people with vision impairment

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

I am a person with visual impairment working with a leading recruitment company as a Recruiter. Naukri is a premium portal for us to source candidates for job placements including people with disability, which is also my focus area.

Off-late Naukri has started changing the user interface of the website thereby making it difficult for people like me who use screen readers to access the portal and source candidates. The website is also not following the WCAG2.0 guideline that helps make websites accessible to people with visual impairment. 

I am mentioning below few places that are not accessible with screen reading softwares.

 1. Resdex: This is the web page where every recruiter will use to search candidate CVs according to their criteria, and a screen reader user cannot select the preferred location, Candidate Education, Industry, Resumes  per page, and the Notice period of the candidates.

Along with that its also not accessible in Job posting, Resume shortlisting etc. These are the main pages that are difficult to access. Essentially, request is to make all the combo boxes, Check boxes, and Radio Buttons accessible with Screen reading software.

 I request you all to support my voice and take it to the concerned team. Regular follow-ups with the Customer Care Centre has not helped so far. I have all the email communications with me. A lot of other visually impaired people in other recruitment firms are also facing the same challenge. A solution is requested to help us function effectively in our jobs.
