Because accessibility is a right, not a privilege.

What does ADDAW stand for?

It stands for Asociación para la Defensa del Derecho a la Accesibilidad Web (Association for the Defence of the Right to Web Accessibility). We are a non-profit association that fights to ensure that this right becomes a reality.

What are we working for?

As we said, we are working towards web accessibility, but what does this mean?

This means that all people, regardless of whether or not they have a disability, should be able to use the Internet and carry out transactions on equal terms.

By law, the following organizations and companies are currently compelled to have their websites accessible (we understand accessible to mean that they comply with the WCAG 2.0):

Federal entities (town halls, museums...)
Entities or associations receiving public funding
Private educational establishments

What do we want to achieve?


Importance of web accessibility

We want to raise social awareness, to educate about the importance of making the web accessible to everyone, as it is an essential right that cannot be denied to anyone.


Accessible websites directory

The creation of this directory will allow people with disabilities, who have problems using the Internet, to know which websites are concerned about accessibility and, at the same time, gather them in the same place.

Accessibility audits of all types of websites

By performing these audits, pages that do not have correct accessibility will be informed about the need to change this situation and the advantages of doing so. In the event that, after the preliminary audit, the company or entity wants to become accessible, ADDAW will commit to provide support, and will leave our accessibility expert auditors at their disposal. This way, we can carry out a complete accessibility audit, following the WCAG-EM methodology to certify the compliance with the regulations.
