For Electronic and Information Technology, accessibility is measured by a variety of factors, including:

  • Conformance with applicable accessibility standards (e.g., WCAG, UAAG, ATAG, WCAG2ICT)
  • Completion of accessibility testing protocols
  • 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.
