Warning : The short papers of this conference have been prepared by BrailleNet who accept any responsibility for them. But presentation materials provided for download (full-papers or slides) have been provided by the authors themselves.

It happens more and more frequently: public and private organisations do not have to contend with managing the accessibility of a single website but have to deal with tens or even hundreds of them. Each of these websites must be improved and be made compliant. In this case, it is interesting to design and implement innovative and industrial approaches to improve accessibility.

Using the real life example of Agence de la Biomédecine as a business case, it appears that it is possible to improve the overall accessibility of a fleet of heterogeneous sites by pooling the assessment, planning, governance and correction.

Cost determine this new approach in accessibility implementation. Industrialising processes are implied by costs-bénéfits ratio optimization.
