Study on monitoring systems for accessible websites

The Competence Center on Digital Accessibility of the Stuttgart Media
University recently conducted a scientific study on "Monitoring systems for
checking websites on accessibility". The goal of this study was to identify
a monitoring system on the market that is best suited for the needs of the
university. We evaluated various factors, e.g. coverage of WCAG criteria,
percentage of errors found, percentage of false positives. Also, we
evaluated the usability of the systems based on an user study.


The monitoring systems that were evaluated in the study are (in alphabetic

-          Deque: WorldSpace Comply (now called axe Monitor)

-          Pope Tech

-          Siteimprove: Accessibility

-          The Paciello Group: ARC Monitoring
