Accessibility Evaluation of Multimedia Resources in selected Latin America Universities

EasyChair Preprint no. 1027

7 pagesDate: May 27, 2019


In the present day, it is a challenge for web accessibility experts to test whether educational and informational resources are accessible. There are no adequate tools and methods to evaluate the accessibility of multimedia resources, which makes the type of video resource not accessible to all users, especially for users with disabilities. Currently, there are millions of multimedia, including video-type resources that we use as an educational input during teaching-learning processes. However, the designers of these resources have neglected in their development the parameter of accessibility to make them more accessible. This research suggests applying a combined method between the automatic tool for photosensitive epilepsy and manual evaluation with the Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology 1.0. We applied this method in 10 video resources of the Latin American universities located in the first places according to Webometrics. This research may contribute to future studies related to the accessibility of multimedia resources.
