EvalAccess allows to automatically evaluate the accessibility of Web pages using the WCAG 1.0 from the W3C.

Evaluation Methods

EvalAccess provides you several methods for evaluating the web accessibility:

Method 1: Evaluate a remote file

This method allows you the on-line accessibility evaluation of a single web page in the "Evaluate single URL" tab. You can also configure the options "Errors" and "Warnings" depending on the nature of guidelines you wnat to evaluate. Moreover, you can also set the evaluation guidelines priority. You must introduce the URL of each Web page in the text box. Afterwards, you have to press the "Evaluate" button for visualizing the results of the accessibility evaluation.

Method 2: Evaluate a whole Web site

Using this method a web site can be evaluated by clicking on the "Evaluate Website" tab. You have to specify the crawling depth (from 1 to 3) and the number of pages that are going to be evaluated through the site (a maximun of 15). A report of each web page will be returned in a list. Note that the evaluation will take more time than usual depending on the number of sites to evalute.

Method 3: Evaluate HTML source

This method allows you evaluating the accessibility of the HTML code. You can also configure the options "Errors" and "Warnings" depending on the nature of guidelines you wnat to evaluate. Afterwards, you have to press the "Evaluate" button for visualizing the results of the accessibility evaluation.

Method 4: Colour contrast analyzer

This preliminary prototype of a colour contrast analyzer make possible the contrast evaluation based on WAI's algorithm. Since it is a prototype is not very reliable.

Results visualization

Following any of the three methods, once pressed the "Evaluate" button, EvalAccess will show you a table with the non-satisfied guidelines according to the type of errors and/or warnings and levels of correction priority. These results will be displayed in two formats:

Resume Report

Each cell of the table expresses the number of errors and/or warnings of a given level of priority, which are not satisfied in the evaluated web page (or source code). If you want more information of each non-satisfied guideline, you should click on the number.

Detailed Report for each level of Priority

This report is returned en methods 1 and 3 and has the following format:

To start a new evaluation or select again the evaluation method implies that the previous evaluations are lost. To prevent this, it is recommended that the last evaluation is stored or printed.
