Inaccessible or blocked sites ? Try Herdict !
Herdict Web aggregates reports of inaccessible sites, allowing users to compare data to see if inaccessibility is a shared problem. By crowdsourcing data from around the world, we can document accessibility for any web site, anywhere.
Directly expanding the OpenNet Initiative activities regarding Internet censorship and surveillance, Herdict Web seeks to gain insight into what users around the world are experiencing in terms of web accessibility.
Let’s say you find a site inaccessible…normally, you might call or e-mail your friends and ask them if they’re experiencing the same thing. With Herdict Web, you can see – in real time – if others are reporting the same phenomenon, giving you a better sense of potential reasons of why the site is inaccessible.
In other words, Herdict presents your verdict, allowing you, the user, to take control of the process and try to determine what’s going on.
