As part of the We4authors, a European Pilot on web accessibility for web authoring tools producers and communities, Funka has analysed the main results of the prototyping and testing of accessibility features in different authoring tools.
The result is a set of 3 different good practice and concrete guidelines available for public sector authorities, producers of authoring tools and for ICT suppliers.
This pilot project consists of a set of focused initiatives with the most relevant and used licensed and open source authoring tools in public sector in Europe, that fosters and facilitates the incorporation of accessibility features as the default option in authoring tools, making them accessible to all, including people with disabilities and older adults.
