Features for Accessibility through Templates

Built-in accessibility to support web authors

How should web authors with limited experience in accessibility be able to meet the legal requirements of the Web Accessibility Directive?

Hundreds of thousands of web authors need training, but wouldn’t it be better if most of the accessibility was sorted out automatically?

That’s what we are trying to achieve in this research project!

Built-in accessibility from the web authors perspective

Agustín Pereña from the Malaga City Council describes why the FEAT templates are so valuable. The video is captioned in English.

Example of features

  • Article page

    The article page is the most frequently used page, where most of the content of the website will be presented. It is designed as an accessible template with a set of basic and accessible built-in features.
  • Calendar event page

    The calendar event page is used to create and communicate events on the website.
  • Image block

    The accessible image block prototype makes it possible to publish an image with an ALT-text and a description.

Accessibility checklists - publishing without the FEAT templates

The templates created in the FEAT project are making it significantly easier to create accessible content. Many of the steps that are usually handled manually, are automated in these templates. As a comparison, we have created a checklist for web authors who are using the ordinary Episerver set-up, so you can see for yourself what a hassle you can avoid by using the FEAT templates.
