This work presents an accessibility evaluation of the two most popular blog tools online: Blogger and Wordpress, under Authoring Tools Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. It also makes a proposal on how to communicate to web content editors the perception of web content by users with disabilities. This proposal aims to be extensible to other Web 2.0 scenarios.

Web 2.0 prosumers face several difficulties in creating accessible content: they don't have the knowledge to do it, they are not conscious of the generated barriers [2], and the tools they use don't help them in this task. The authors believe that raising awareness between users Web 2.0 on the most problematic accessibility errors will contribute to create better and more accessible content.
