Checking of web accessibility can be carried out in several ways along the same international standards and depending on the scale, the quality, availability of tools and the interpretation method that is followed. The Unified Web Evaluation Methodology is developed by European expert organizations and offers test descriptions to evaluate WCAG 1.0 conformance covering level AA, a clear sampling scheme, improved aggregations supporting confidence levels, Score cards and other instruments to help communicate the results of evaluations clearer and on more levels. The aim is to establish the UWEM as the basis for web accessibility evaluation, policy support and possible certification in Europe.
