HONG KONG, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DYXnet Group, Greater China's leading carrier-neutral network service provider, has struck gold in the website world by winning the coveted Web Accessibility Recognition Scheme - Gold Award.

Organisations of all sizes have been vying for this prestigious annual award since it was first established in 2012 by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer in partnership with the Equal Opportunities Commission.

The scheme recognises and rewards industry players that adopt thoughtful website designs to remove barriers to members of society challenged by disabilities such as impaired eyesight, dyslexia or epilepsy.  

Gold honours were bestowed on DYXnet Group after it was singled out from more than 239 contenders in the Website Stream category of the award scheme. The accolade was received on behalf of the company by Floria Chan, Group Director of Marketing & Corporate Communications, at a special presentation Ceremony held today.

Lap Man, Founder & CEO of DYXnet Group, said: "We are absolutely delighted to receive this award, especially after winning silver status in the scheme last year. In fact, I'm very proud of my team because they worked tirelessly to meet 24 judging criteria for the Gold Award, whereas Silver only involves 13 criteria."

He added: "Hong Kong is home to some 330,000 companies, and if each could take a small step for society, it would amount to a giant leap in helping so many! DYXnet Group operates on a day-to-day basis with a keen sense of community spirit, so we constantly look for new ways of providing users with a pleasant search experience, especially those members of society not so fortunate as ourselves."
