Abstract

The Web is widely used as a delivery channel and the importance of eAccessibility to
digital resources is now widely acknowledged. By developing a series of guidelines and designing
standards the W3C WAI has played an important role to achieve the goal of eAccessibility and to
ensure that Web resources can be accessed by people with special need. Accessibility tools play a
critical and important role in ensuring the accessibility of the Web and perform a static analysis of
home pages or sites regarding their accessibility. This paper claims that because of no
standardization these tools often provide different results of the same tested Website according to
their own interpretation and due to the lack of standard testing methods eAccessibility is a difficult
goal to achieve.
