What is the difference between the Tingtun Checker and other tools such as CynthiaSays or the (X)HTML Validator by the W3C?f Send us your feedback on the checker or check results.
Tools like the (X)HTML Validator by the W3C test the code for validity.
But accessibility is more than just valid code. That is why the W3C HTML tests are integrated into the Tingtun Checker together with further accessibility tests.
Compared to CynthiaSays and other tools, that check accessibility, there will be many similarities. But different approaches put the emphasis on different parts.
Please also note that formally, validation is not required for WCAG 2.0 conformance.top
For a complete overview of barriers on your web site, a manual evaluation is required. However, a manual exhaustive evaluation of web accessibility is generally very labor intensive.
In addtion to identifying barriers, the Tingtun Checker also provides reports about parts of the web page that need further human judgment to confirm the accessibility. For instance test 2.4.6-2 reports problems with labels for form controls. If a label is defined the user of the checker is asked to verify that the label describes the purpose of the form control.top
I get score 100% from the Tingtun Checker. Does this mean my web page is completely barrier free / accessible?f Send us your feedback on the checker or check results.
This may not be the case. No barriers detected by the Tingtun Checker (score 100%) means there were no barriers detected using the automatic tests.
There may still exist barriers which the Tingtun Checker could not detect. For a verification that you web page is completely barrier free / accessible, manual tests performed by an accessibility expert are needed in addition.top
Why is it that reliable and well linked sites like Google also fail several tests?f Send us your feedback on the checker or check results.
The accessibility of websites is not correlated with how known the website is, but with how it is implemented.top
Why is the result from the eAccessibility checker different from other evaluations, such as the web site quality assessment made by the Agency for Public Management and eGovernment (Difi)?f Send us your feedback on the checker or check results.
The Tingtun Checker evaluates only one page. while Difi selects up to 3 pages that are representative of the complete web site.
Both the Difi and the eGovMon approaches have selected a subset of all possible indicators of web accessibility. There is some overlap, but the emphasis is put on different parts.
Only the accessibility component of the eGovernment quality assessment percentage score should be considered in the comparison because usability and content are not covered by eGovMon.top
