Resumen

This work consisted in applying a web accessibility model in accordance with the WCAG 2.1 guidelines for the development of a virtual museum, as well as studying the context of museum accessibility, the perspectives of the groups involved in its development, the time, effort and investment required, and providing an answer on who are the people that require accessibility.The software development team performed two types of tests on the web application: An automated test and manual test. In the case of automated tests, the tools used automatically perform a quick review of the website and evaluate aspects such as color contrast, text size, consistency in the HTML structure, styles and page navigability, while for manual tests, solutions based on WCAG 2.1 were implemented to comply with the principles: i) Perceptible, automatic text reading, and zoom function were added to see an image in detail; ii) Operable: keyboard navigation was added to all the website's functionalities, iii) Understandable: symbols were designed in a consistent way to the action they represent, and all images have an adequate description, iv) Robust, the website allows the user to use their own technologies, adapting to them. Finally, tests were conducted with disabled users using a questionnaire and focus group techniques to assess their perception on using the website and the results indicate the website is accessible.
