Accessible Electronic and Information Technology is assessed based on a variety of factors, including:

  • Conformance with applicable accessibility standards (e.g., WCAG, UAAG, ATAG, WCAG2ICT)
  • Completion of accessibility testing protocols described in this guide
  • Compatibility with assistive technologies
  • Development and adoption of Equally Effective Alternative Access Plan (EEAAP)

Use some or all of the testing techniques described in this section to better understand barriers to access that may reside in your technology. Note that not every technique will apply in every instance; in particular, automated testing tools and options will vary widely across different categories of technology.
