Speaker(s) : Dominique Laporte
Language : Français Level : Confirmed Nature : Conference
Date : Wednesday 7 July 2010 Schedule : 15h20 Duration : 20 minutes
Place: ENSEIRB - Amphi A
Transversal topics: Accessibility

Web standards are more and more mainstream; the conformance is a necessary condition for a website in order to be almost accessible. A lot of entities have in mind of all issues related to this topic, despite the fact we still need easy and fast tools to check those standards conformance during staging and development processes.

We will begin by a quick tour of the Web standards, and accessibility grade levels. We will then present HTML Validator and Total Validator, online validation tools.
Finally, we will show some use cases of conflict between conformance and accessibility, and we will conclude by demonstrating technical limitations of those tools.
