    The Spanish state carries using, since the year 2010, the tool of the tracker of the observatory of Web Accessibility, for the purposes of monitoring, reporting and follow-up in the Spanish state. Therefore, in the new European context, in which all member states will have to work to monitor the accessibility of their public websites, the Ministry of Finance and Public Function has decided to liberate their tool for internal use as free software . In this way, could be exploited by other states or institutions for periodic reviews of accessibility.

    The Public Sector English already has at its disposal for years the free use of diagnostic Service online Accessibility community still need Only register in it.

    The Tracker OAW is the tool that enables carrying out the various iterations of the Web Accessibility observatory (OAW) and the use of diagnostic service available online through the Accessibility community Tracker. allows OAW check the accessibility of a website and generate automatic reports from the almost 100 checks implemented in the platform, in addition to make recommendations on how to solve the problems detected.

    The revision of accessibility of studies of the OAW is done via a automatic methodology based on the standard UNE 139803:2012 (WCAG 2.0) , developed specifically to the observatory of Web accessibility. This methodology takes into account only 20 accessibility checks. And each verification is composed by several checks performed automatically. It has also been possible to include some checks for revision usually manual through specialized metrics.

    The tracker OAW enables the user to configure all parameters needed to perform a iteration the observatory (portals, pages per portal, methodology, periodicity, etc.) and of course to carry out and control the entire process of implementation and verification . It allows you to generate the reports of findings and results requirements for both obtain the overview of situation of accessibility in a particular area as obtain detailed reports for each of the sites that facilitate the resolution of existing problems.

    Moreover the tracker OAW is used by the diagnostic service online available in the community Accessibility to obtain an estimate, on demand, what results in an official iteration. Facilitating the future correction and collation of the possible errors in the portal.

    The tracker of OAW analyzes twice a year more than 700 portals reflecting the official analysis of approximately 25,000 pages. Likewise, through the online diagnosis is requested the analysis of more than 60,000 pages annually.

    Since the technological point of view, the product is constructed from free software tools which in addition to its provision have also been used as free products apache, tomcat, mysql, etc. This tool was developed initially by the old INTECO. After its transformation into the current INCIBE , all of the source code and materials were assigned to the MINHAFP which continued the product and that now, once released, offers to all potential stakeholders.

    Unshade accordion

    With the experience we have accumulated during these last 2 years of operation of the service based on UNE 139803:2012 going to launch a revision of the methodology.

    In this review we are thinking include issues such as:

    • Expand the number of pages analysed (for a better overview in statistical results)
    • Modifications on checks and checks. Including new, removing perhaps some that are providing little value, or modifying / refine some of the existing ones.
    • Remove the distribution on 2 levels of analysis (level of analysis I and level of analysis (II). The room for mistakes in the portals that contemplates the methodology was distributed globally (among the 20) and not for each level of analysis. Move to contemplate a single set of verifications benefit us all and really would be more proportionate and fair.

    The current version of the methodology is available at: http://administracionelectronica.gob.es/PAe/accesibilidad/metodologiaUNE2012

    We hope your contributions to the next 30 September. You can hacérnoslas arrive through collaborative forum of the community itself Accessibility available to members of the community in the tab "Collaboration".

    Service enhancements diagnostic on-line accessibility

    Unshade accordion

    We put at your disposal a new version of the service diagnostic on-line accessibility which includes 2 major improvements requested by our users. These improvements allow you to increase the quality of the random selection of pages so that it is easier to analyse in depth all contents housed in a portal. Even those responsible for a single section within a large vestibule could evaluate.

    * Limitation of analysis within a directory. Those sites that have organized its portal structure through directories may, if you wish, restrict the random selection of pages to the directory containing the URL indicated. The selected directory will be until the last "/" that appears in the URL. That is, an application of analysis to page http://www.portal.es/directorio1/directorio2/pagina.html (Opens in new window) to activate the option "trace Not outside the directory" only select pages whose URL contains http://www.portal.es/directorio1/directorio2/ (Opens in new window)
    * Restriction of analysis to special pages. It has implemented a limitation in the tracker which performs the random selection of pages so that exclude how pages to analyse those whose links are given a literal. Currently, the only verbatim including have been those relating to "printing" to avoid analyse these pages that are not prepared for web browsing, but to be printed on paper. It would be impossible to include new similar cases detected.

    We hope that these improvements are very useful and encourage you to send us your suggestions and requests through forums active in the community Accessibility. We are happy to improve.

    Publication accessibility Guide for Multimedia Content

    Unshade accordion

    As we communicate long ago, one of the aspects that we were going to discuss in detail in the practical guides of the observatory of Web Accessibility were the multimedia content: audio and video. This is because many of the requirements imposed on this content cannot be considered automatically from the periodic surveys of the observatory of web accessibility.

    The multimedia content, for their special characteristics, is one of the types of content that is more difficult to provide optimal quality of accessibility. Despite this, the evolution in the network has made this kind of content is increasingly present in institutional portals, especially in sections of the press. However, we must not forget that although costly, such content must comply with accessibility requirements so that they can be accessed by all citizens.

    The accessibility guide in Multimedia Content is indicated for both technical officers of portals and responsbles sections with multimedia content, such as press cabinets. The guide specifies both the technical requirements for the inclusion of multimedia content on the website as specific requirements that must comply with the actual content during his generation and preparation (subtitles, sign language, etc.). It Is also important to highlight that before the nearby need to implementation of the WCAG 2.0, the guide contains these requirements in function of the new patterns of accessibility.

    The guides can be found in paragraph "Documentation". They can also be found in the section "EGovernment Inclusive - Accessibility" of Electronic Administration Portal (http://administracionelectronica.gob.es).

    We hope you will be useful

    Accessibility guide in Electro Headquarters

    Unshade accordion

    As you already know, one of the aspects that we cannot look in the observatory of web accessibility is the state of the electronic forms whose use requires an authentication process. However, accessibility in these electronic forms, present mostly electronic headquarters, is one of the key aspects to get an e-administration which can participate all citizens.

    Since the observatory of accessibility have prepared a new practical guide: "Accessibility guide in electronic headquarters" in which we try more specific questions of electronic headquarters as an electronic signature and the electronic forms.

    It is important to note that the use of electronic certificates or electronic signature in a seat does not imply that this seat is not accessible. It is one of the exceptions under the law: there is no alternative technology that allows the use of signature without programming elements in client. But the headquarters must comply with the rest of accessibility requirements demanded a portal.

    Developers should provide a special interest to accessibility of the electronic forms. It Is the element of interaction with the end user (citizen, company, etc.) and if It cannot operate with the form completely prevents the use of the electronic.

    Attached with the guide an example of form accessible in format XHTML + CSS for possible use as a reference model.

    Finally, as in most cases these forms require a user authentication cannot be used the usual tools of validation of accessibility. In these cases it is necessary to use more specific tools, oriented in many cases to the revision manual. The guide you will find a selection of useful tools for verification of accessibility in part authenticated electronic headquarters.

    We hope that this guide you can be very useful to both the you have already made your electronic headquarters as to which you are in the process of doing tawaaf.

    The guides can be found in paragraph "Documentation" community. They can also be found in the section "EGovernment Inclusive" of the new Portal of Electronic administration.
