    Abstract

    Computers and software have become necessities in human society, and most people are required to be able to use them. However, software is not always accessible for users with special needs, and it is difficult to develop software accessible to such users. There are many guidelines and support tools for developing accessible websites. For software, however, such guidelines and support tools are few. In our research, to develop accessible software easily we propose a method of evaluating the accessibility of Graphical User Interface (GUI) software. This method involves analyzing GUI software source programs, assessing accessibility on the basis of accessibility guidelines, and presenting a list of unsatisfactory accessibility code and indicating how to modify it.
