Web Accessibility Evaluation Methodology
The evaluation of Web Accessibility is a process which can be automated only in parts. Evaluations should lead to comparable and traceable results to avoid confusion and contradicting information on the status of a web page related to accessibility. As criteria are often dependent on interpretation by experts objective results are dependent on the underlying process and procedures. Web evaluation methodologies intend to support the process and should allow a traceable and comparable result of the evaluation process. At EU level, three projects developed the Unified Web Evaluation Methodology (UWEM) based on the WCAG 1.0 guidelines.
Several groups in Europe seem to work on an update of their methodology as this is of importance for their practice. The update of documents covering this is currently undertaken inside W3C/WAI. eAccess+ intends to support all work undertaken by W3C, Stakeholders and Member States to update and harmonize W3C/WAI documents supporting harmonizing evaluations. We will support by motivating and facilitating this work in the network.
