Abstract
For successful implementations of E-Government, it is critical that information must be available and accessible to all citizens regardless any disability and physical limitations. The demand for the wider access to government information and promoting awareness among individuals of the society through this information is the fundamental responsibility of the governmental bodies. E-accessibility is about social inclusion and equal opportunities. E-Government is the use of ICT to transform government by making it accessible, available, effective and efficient to make sure the inclusion of all communities in the society. The current number of disable people around the world is far from the imagination. A large number of population cannot access information due to several disabilities and other barriers. The research in this paper attempts to explore the importance of E-accessibility for the implementation of successful E-Government especially in the United Arab Emirates. The research in this paper claims that a very little importance has been paid to the issues and features of E-accessibility in developing the governmental websites around UAE and large number of population has been ignored through this way. © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery.
