Resultados del estudio The WebAIM Million

Este es el quinto año que WebAIM publica The WebAIM Million. Los resultados son similares a los años anteriores.

Esta vez, el porcentaje de páginas web que presentan algún error es 96.3%. Este porcentaje solo ha bajado 1.5% desde el 97.8% del primer año:

96.3% of home pages had detected WCAG 2 failures! This improved very slightly from 96.8% in 2022. Over the last 4 years, the pages with detectable WCAG failures has decreased by only 1.5% from 97.8%. These are only automatically detected errors that align with WCAG conformance failures with a high level of reliability. Because automatic testing cannot detect all possible WCAG failure types, this means that the actual WCAG 2 A/AA conformance level was certainly lower.

Los errores más comunes siguen siendo los mismos que otros años:

  • Low contrast text
  • Missing alternative text
  • Empty links
  • Missing form labels
  • Empty buttons
  • Missing document language

El informe dice:

96.1% of all errors detected fall into these six categories. These most common errors have been the same for the last 5 years. Addressing just these few types of issues would significantly improve accessibility across the web.
