  • The spectacular rise of multimedia Web content, especially video and audio content, makes addressing its accessibility a matter of urgency. All the regulations recognize that this type of content must be accessible to everyone, with or without a disability. To address this issue, this article presents a Model-Based Graphical Editor to design Accessible Media Players. This tool has been created in order to provide support to designers with little background in accessibility. To accomplish this work, a review of Accessibility Standards Regulation has been carried out, a set of accessibility requirements for accessible media players is proposed and a modelling of these requirements has been made.
