The European Accessibility Act (EAA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are directives aimed at improving the accessibility of products and services within the European Union for people with disabilities. Official link to the guidelines:

Here are the guidelines that Sofy automates as part of Accessibility Testing:

1.1.1 Non-text Content

All non-text content presented to the user has a text alternative that serves the equivalent purpose.

  • Controls, Input: If non-text content is a control or accepts user input, it has a name that describes its purpose.
  • Decoration, Formatting, Invisible: If non-text content is pure decoration, used only for visual formatting, or not presented to users, then it is implemented in a way that assistive technology can ignore.

Level: A

1.3.1 Info and Relationships

Information, structure, and relationships conveyed through presentation can be programmatically determined or are available in text.

Level: A

1.3.4 Orientation

Content does not restrict its view and operation to a single display orientation unless a specific orientation is essential.

Level: AA

2.4.6 Headings and Labels

Headings and labels describe the topic or purpose.

Level: AA

2.5.3 Label in Name

For UI components with labels that include text or images of text, the name contains text that is presented visually.

Level: A

2.5.5 Target Size

The target size for pointer inputs is at least 44 by 44 CSS pixels.

Level: AAA

4.1.2 Name, Role, Value

For all user interface components, the name and role can be programmatically determined; states, properties, and values can be set by the user; and changes to these items are available to user agents, including assistive technologies.
