Design of accessible Web applications is a complex challenge. The presented concept demonstrates the potential of model-based and user-centered development. Based on Web accessibility patterns, a suitable solution is discussed which can be used to simplify the development process. Using an established approach from Web engineering, the use of patterns is demonstrated. 
WCAG conformance approach based on model-driven development and WebML
TLDR
This work proposes the inclusion of the WCAG 2.0 accessibility concerns in a Model-Driven Development, more specifically in the WebML process. Expand
An approach to improve the accessibility and usability of existing web system
TLDR
This paper presents ACCESSA, a practical approach to rapidly improve the accessibility of existing Web systems, acting mainly in the interface design with no changes to the functional requirements of systems. Expand
Merging Web Accessibility and Usability by Patterns
TLDR
A pattern approach was chosen to meet the practical requirements of UI designers which are often not familiar with accessibility needs, a collection of patterns for human-computer interaction (HCI) has been extended with accessibility requirements and a pattern example illustrates the cooperation of usability and accessibility in detail.

User-Oriented Accessibility Patterns for Smart Environments
TLDR
The proposed idea is to provide two generic patterns used for any accessibility modeling problem, and additionally the creation of two pattern libraries presenting concrete solutions for the most common user-based accessibility problems. Expand
A Model-driven Development for Creating Accessible Web Menus
TLDR
A meta-model was developed that originated the DSL (Domain Specific Language) called AMenu (Accessible Menu) and the results indicate a reduction in efforts for developing accessible web menus, since developers do not have to deal with technical details of accessibility. Expand
Model-driven development of accessible software: a systematic literature review
TLDR
A systematic review was carried out to investigate and analyze the studies related to model-driven development of accessible software, including the revision of standards directly related to software accessibility and the qualitative evaluation of the different existing proposals. Expand
Accessibility in rich internet applications: people and research
TLDR
A Systematic Literature Review of studies addressing accessibility and awareness of others in RIAs is conducted and the target people and the methods employed for involving them in the research lifecycle are analyzed. Expand
Model Driven Web Engineering: A Systematic Mapping Study
TLDR
A survey of primary studies on MDWE to explore current work and identify needs for future research finds the most focused areas of MDWE appear to be: Web Applicability, Molding and Notation, and Services and Oriented. Expand
Emerging technologies and web accessibility: research challenges and opportunities focussing on vision issues
TLDR
This article then reviews emerging trends within the Web and Web Accessibility domains to enable the research community to undertake preventative measures and proactively address challenges, while recognising opportunities, before they become unpreventable or require retrospective technological enhancement.

Accessibility: a Web engineering approach
TLDR
The Dante approach with a web design method, WSDM, is combined to fully automate the generation of the semantic annotation for visually impaired users, where the semantic knowledge gathered during the design process is exploited, and the annotations are generated as a by-product of theDesign process, requiring no extra effort from the designer.

TLDR
Based on recent approaches for model-based Web application development the BeLearning concept demonstrates the integration of mental models into the design process of accessible eLearning environments. Expand
A Unifying Reference Framework for multi-target user interfaces
TLDR
A unified understanding of context-sensitive user interfaces is attempted rather than a prescription of various ways or methods of tackling different steps of development, which structures the development life cycle into four levels of abstraction: task and concepts, abstract user interface, concrete user interface and final user interface.

Ontology Based Semantic Annotation for Enhancing Mobility Support for Visually Impaired Web Users
TLDR
The main message of this paper is that visually impaired Web users could also benefit from the Semantic Webtechnologies and here it is demonstrated a possible approach to achieve that. Expand
