The e-Committee of the Supreme Court of India has taken several initiatives to make Indian Judicial System more accessible to the Persons with Disabilities (PwDs).
In coordination with all the High Courts, the e-Committee has now ensured that visual captchas are accompanied by text and audio captchas making the website content accessible to the visually challenged. These captchas provide access to judgments, orders, cause-lists and help in checking the status of court cases. Another significant initiative undertaken by the e-Committee in collaboration with NIC is creating a judgment search portal accessible to persons with disabilities. The website of the e-Committee and the e-Courts website are also accessible to persons with disabilities.
Chairperson of the e-Committee, Dr. Justice D.Y. Chandrachud had exhorted all High Courts to make their digital infrastructure accessible to persons with disabilities.
