Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology Now Available

Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology (WCAG-EM) describes an approach for evaluating how websites -- including web applications and websites for mobile devices -- conform to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. It covers different situations, including self-assessment and third-party evaluation. It is independent of particular evaluation tools, web browsers, and assistive technologies.

This methodology is currently published as a draft and is open for public comment.

Background:

WCAG-EM is developed by the WCAG 2.0 Evaluation Methodology Task Force (Eval TF), a joint task force of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Working Group (WCAG WG) and Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group (ERT WG). Kathy Wahlbin of Interactive Accessibility is one of the participants on this task force.
