This presentation was made at the ICCHP conference, Linz 2012. It presents the elaboration of a progressive implementation model for WCAG, centered on the notions of access to information and essential needs of users. MIPAW’s main goal is to serve as a framework for the elaboration of progressive enhancement methodologies, of measurement systems of the real level of accessibility, and the setting up of efficient quality assurance management systems. Based on state of the art, real-world experience, and expertise in accessibility, as well as quality assurance areas, the project has the ambition of providing methodological tools better suited to the constraints of web industrialization, while preserving the deployment of real user-centric accessibility. MIPAW is a project lead as part of the activities of the AccessiWeb GTA (Workgroup on Accessibility), and has received active support from 16 of the most prominent French companies in the area of expertise in digital accessibility.

  • Criterion 3.3 [Silver] On each Web page, is the contrast between text colour and the colour of text background high enough ( except in special cases )? Criterion 3.4 [Gold] On each Web page, is the contrast between text colour and the colour of its background enhanced (except in special cases)? Criterion 4.9 [Gold] Does each prerecorded time-based media have a sign language interpretation (except in special cases) if necessary? Criterion 9.5 [Bronze] On each Web page, is each quote identified properly?

    5. 5. Two approaches Excellence-based approach Gradual approach Conformance Requirement Means Conformance Requirement Means s s = Goal Maximal Controls = Indicator Relative Quality Certification Management Advantages Advantages Service to users, Guarantees Mastered, Adaptable2012 Main Risks Main Risks Over-quality, strongly Impacts the Users under-served, project accessibility at low priority Accessibility dropped out
    6. 6. The Ambition of MIPAW2012 To build a methodology combining advantages of the excellence-based and the gradual approaches and addressing concrete user expectations
    7. 7. User’s expectations … To be able to access and to use information, isn’t it ?2012 Can WCAG 2.0 be viewed from this point ?

They cover all three levels. •All three WCAG levels are represented in each set of criteria

    11. 11. A Model for a Progressive Implementation of Web Accessibility (MIPAW) Criteria can be distributed on a scale representing the various degrees of optimisation Access to information Access to information Critical UX Improvement2012 • Excellence-based approach • Gradual approach • No exception allowed • Flexible
    12. 12. MIPAW and WCAG Conformance Compatibility with WCAG levels and conformance 100% WCAG conformance on each level is reached when criteria are met in the 4 groups, for the considered WCAG level. Access to information Access to information Essential Device UX Improvement2012 WCAG Conformance
    13. 13. Conclusion Some of our expectations regarding this Model for Implementation Progressively Accessibility into Web services : •To be representative of a possible gradual implementation strategy • less demanding than purely excellence-based approaches • yet with no compromises with regards to essential users needs. •Likely to provide an adequate support for project management methodologies with gradual implementation phases, while remaining focused on users needs. •Theoretical playground for couplings between WCAG, excellence-based approaches, and gradual strategies.2012 •Can support measurement systems that include defect-tolerance •Publication of first results: end of 2012 •Hoped to be a contribution to methodological work conducted by W3C/WAI
