----- Original Message ----- 

The German project "BIK" (barrier free information and communication)
has published the test tool "BITV-Kurztest" with 52 checkpoints to judge
accessibility of websites.
Objective of this tool is to check and examine the accessibilty status
of websites in an easy and reliable way according the German law "BITV".
Therefore the checkpoints comprise the German BITV-priority I (which is
nearly the same as WCAG 1.0 AA).

A special quality of this tool is a detailed description of the
check-steps and of the general procedure: possible automatic
check-tools, possible browsers and subtools for manual checks,
description of sub-steps for manual browser checks, arguments and
explanations of the ckeckpoints (e.g.: why a checkpoint should be
checked, why in the way described, open issues and faq for the
checkpoints, ...). This is the first complete (German) description even
of how to make manual checks for checkpoints which normaly could not be
checked automatically with robots.
"BIK" is a partner of the German Alliance for barrier free Information
technology (AbI) and
the "BITV-Kurztest" is recommended by AbI as the second step of the 3
step procedure for testing accessibility of websites.
