WCAG 2.0 Semi-automatic Accessibility Evaluation System: Design and Implementation

Hend S. Al-Khalifa

Abstract


The current state of web accessibility evaluation systems is encouraging, yet not sufficient. Many evaluation systems were developed for evaluating websites based on WCAG 2.0 recommendations, however, their effectiveness is somewhat incomplete. Specifically, web accessibility evaluation systems, not being able to handle a website language poses a series of challenges for web accessibility evaluation. This paper details the design and implementation of Level A WCAG 2.0 semi-automatic accessibility evaluation system capable of processing Arabic websites. The system builds on previous work in this area and overcomes the problem encountered while dealing with Arabic websites. Our system evaluation shows that, in fact, there are considerable differences between our system and other accessibility evaluation systems, in terms of having distinct evaluation results.
