Appokey advanced accessibility analysis of applications under development
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||December 2017 - July 2018|
Purpose and goal
The AppOkey Validation Engine project has had the goal and purpose of completing and initiating the establishment of a new support service for accessibility review of applications. The review is based on the new EU directive EN 301549. We can note that we have achieved the goals we set up to implement in a relatively limited period of time with a successful result.
Expected results and effects
In the fall of 2018, we can now offer a first version of the Appokey Validation Engines service, a review of applications digital accessibility for all. The result of the availability optimization of applications that our future customers can do with our service will ultimately come to all users of applications. We see that with our upcoming service, we can help create a digitally accessible, equal society for many people.
Planned approach and implementation
We have completed Appokeys Prof of Concept and conducted a number of accessibility tests and analyzes of applications under development and further development. The work has been done in close cooperation with companies / test customers who were interested in trying our future service. Adjustments and further development of the system have been based on tests and customer feedback. The result of the availability reviews has been an eye-opener for participating companies, as well as the availability of people with functional variations in the applications tested.
