A NEW APPROACH TO THE AUTOMATIC WEB ACCESSIBILITY

Juan Manuel Fernández, Vicenç Soler, Jordi Roig

Abstract

The number of Web pages created in an inaccessible manner is very high, and to convert them to be accessible can be impossible. We present a study of different tools that can help to obtain a total Web Accessibility. With this study, we can see the advantages of the automatic correction and the possibilities that this kind of tools offer. The result of the study shows how the applications adapt the Web pages to both the World Wide Web Consortium HTML grammar and to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. With this study we find an automatic way to improve Web Accessibility and to solve the problems that it can offer to the Web pages authors. This way consists of combining two tools. This combination gives us results that allow disabled people to use a system that can convert the entire Web in an accessible way.
