English abstract

There are many reasons to avoid implementing websites accessibility. From a business view it is not a simple process, nor inexpensive and, in addition, it is not always demanded by the client. From the designer point of view, reasons like the lack of time, formation, tools or guides of development are adduced (To lasso, Dudley-Sponaugle, and Greenidge 2004/3, 269-288). It is thus necessary to explain and understand why website accessibility it is important, and what kind of benefits can bring.

Spanish abstract

Existen múltiples razones para no implementar la accesibilidad en las sedes web. Desde el punto de vista empresarial se sabe que no es un proceso trivial, ni gratuito y, además, en muchas ocasiones, ni tan solo es demandado por el cliente. Desde el punto de vista de la ingeniería, se aducen razones como la falta de tiempo, de formación, de herramientas o de guías de desarrollo (Lazar, Dudley-Sponaugle, and Greenidge 2004/3, 269-288). Así pues, es necesario explicar y entender por qué la accesibilidad web es importante y qué tipo de beneficios va a aportar.
