Key indicators - A selection of test procedures for area surveillance
For area surveillance where the goal is to provide an overview of the status of universal design for websites, the Authority has made a selection of 16 of the 35 success criteria in WCAG 2.0, as referred to in the Norwegian regulations.
Test procedures and key indicators
The selection of key indicators/test procedures cover
- the four main principles in WCAG 2.0
- a variety of user situations, in order to test universal design
- common types of web content
- areas of risk identified in earlier status measurements and supervision
We consider these test procedures to provide a good basis for status measurements, where we can verify a relatively large volume of web solutions.
The test procedures are manual and are published here as a set of Excel spreadsheets.
