Funka reviews web accessibility monitoring initiatives

In the framework for the study called “Monitoring methodologies for web-accessibility in the European Union”, Funka has set up a network of National Correspondents to carry out a screening of the web accessibility monitoring initiatives and methodologies in 30 countries (All EU countries plus Norway and USA).

The main focus of this initial country screening is to have more information about the key aspects of the existing monitoring initiatives, mainly those oriented to verify compliance with national provisions in the field of web-accessibility, such as regulation or guidelines. -It is very interesting to compare the methods used in various member states, says Andreas Cederbom, Head of Analysis at Funka who manages the study. The study team is now in a phase of analysing the methodologies to see what aspects are most effective, accurate and reliable.
