Abstract: The Web is an important medium for receiving information, providing information and interacting with society. Its importance is in its universality to be accessed by everyone. Accessibility is achieved by following guidelines and usage of different testing tools when designing web sites. The goal of this paper is to examine the compliance of a group of web sites to the WCAG and ARIA accessibility guidelines. To achieve that we are going to give overview of the WCAG and ARIA guidelines and define the requirements needed to achieve accessibility. We are going to use Tenon and Lighthouse automated tools as well as manual testing to test the accessibility of the most visited Macedonian web sites. To find out these sites we are going to use Alexa and SimilarWeb web traffic analytical tools. At the end we are going to discuss and compare the collected results.
