HTML accessibility checking

Within VISUAL three partners developed each parts of an accessibility checking system, which were then assembled into the Web Authoring Tool (VISUAL result eTIP number: 18291).

KULRD developed a component for checking the accessibility of HTML and XHTML code. The rules against which the HTML/XHTML code is checked are described in an XML format. This approach may be adaptable to other mark-up languages (checking accessibility of SVG, XHTML 2, etc.). KULRD wants to further explore this approach in other research and development projects, possibly also the forthcoming project BenToWeb [IST-2-004275-STP] - Benchmarking Tools for the Web.

SCT integrated the component developed by the KULRD to check the accessibility of HTML and XHTML code into de VISUAL tool, to assists authors in the creation of accessible web content.
