Abstract

This article presents the process of creating a framework for the front-end development of web applications with accessibility for the visually impaired and responsivity. As a result, Acceasy was created. Its operation, some examples and its contributions to web application developers and end users are presented. The framework created proved to be able to generate web pages with responsivity support, semantic codes and use of accessibility markings automatically, thus facilitating the work of developers. The pages created with the tool also show improvements in accessibility, giving support to screen readers and keyboard navigation. The framework is still in development. Some validations still need to be made and at the end, future works are listed.
