Abstract

This paper provides an introduction to automatic and manual evaluation methods for analysis of web accessibility. The first topic examines the recent results in advances in authoring, including modifications to existing CMS systems and new development toolkits. Next, the session explores the accessibility of specialized content such as graphics and interface components. The last topic in the session covers the results of the Web Accessibility Benchmarking Cluster of European Union supported projects (WAB-Cluster). Authors discuss technologies needed for automatic as well as manual evaluation.
