The compliance of public and large private companies’ websites has now become mandatory.
These organisations are required by law to publish a declaration of compliance on (all) their websites, i.e. how accessible the website is in relation to the RGAA (the French government’s official guide to improving accessibility).
It should be noted that when 97% of the most frequently visited websites in the world have at least 1 accessibility error, this relates to automated tests. More than 70% of tests against the RGAA can only be performed manually.
So taking account of recommendations for monitoring and/or improving accessibility remains a lengthy and tedious task. Above all when there are very few tools available for this kind of monitoring.
If we want large website groups to be able to conduct regular audits of their websites, the provision of methodologies and open source tools by the state seems to be a prerequisite.
Let’s first take a look at why accessibility helps to improve the overall quality of a website, then let’s examine the large-scale methodology for monitoring the compliance of initiatives put in place by the French Ministry of the Economy, Finance and Recovery.
We will present Frago (https://github.com/DISIC/frago), a goHugo theme enabling RGAA audit summaries to be generated from simple .csv files
