ACCESSIBLE is an EU project that ran out in September 2011. The main goal was the development of a methodology to allow designers to make initial accessibility assessments before involving users in evaluations. The effectiveness of guidelines like WCAG 2.0 is questioned. Instead a scalable simulation system that consists of methodology and tools has been proposed. The methodology aims at automated exploitation of existing guidelines. The simulation system will integrate combinations of disabilities. The website supports a sourceforge page where a number of its tool sare available for download. In particular it provides a web accessibility tool (opens in new window) and a mobile web accessibility tool (opens in new window). The project also presents a number of links to project-related ontologies (opens in new window); however, most of those do not work..
