ASSESSMENT OF WEB ACCESSIBILITY

We analyze prototypes or applications for ensuring that they comply with the accessibility principles defined by the WCAG 2.0 in any of the objective conformity levels.

The audience for which the applications are destined is very diverse, and to assume this diversity is a very important aspect, since it greatly conditions the design of the application.

Accessibility deals with the regulations that an information system must comply with, with regards to the right use of contents, from the different devices (mobiles, tablets, pc’s, operational systems, navigators and reading devices…), for helping handicapped people. Such regulations are collected in a series of criteria grouped in priorities according to the desired accessibility level.

The aim of this service is to analyze the accessibility level of the applications (whether they are prototypes or built) and to propose improvements that result in the compliance of the accessibility criteria defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in accordance to the objective level of priority (‘A’, ‘AA’ or ‘AAA’).

No-accessibility may cause a considerable damage to the institutional prestige and image of the organization, when the needs of all the users are unattended (including those with disabilities). Moreover, a best accessibility improves the usability and therefore the use experience, and lastly, it facilitates the maintenance and updating of the application.
