Abstract—There are several countries with laws to ensure that e-government websites meet accessibility requirements. Nevertheless, laws that regulate web accessibility do not guarantee an application. Therefore, it is necessary to check the web accessibility level of the websites in order to have a diagnosis of the current situation. The websites of Brazilian Judiciary Agencies are gateways to access for information and judicial proceedings information that the citizen needs. This project aims to develop a system capable of automatically verify the accessibility of Brazilian Judiciary Agencies websites for the benefit of citizens. Although the Brazilian accessibility guideline is eMAG, based on WCAG 2.0, the websites were evaluated only within the guidelines of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). They will focus on the analysis of the websites of Brazilian Judiciary Agencies, available on the website of the National Council of Justice (CNJ, Conselho Nacional de Justiça). As a result, we will have a picture of how accessibility is being fulfilled by the Brazilian Judiciary Agencies. Then, we obtained a picture of how the norms on accessibility are being fulfilled by Brazilian Judiciary Agencies. None of the reviewed websites met the minimum required by the WCAG 2.0 guideline. The Success Criteria violated by the websites were analyzed using the Pareto Principle, which can identify the main problems found in the websites analyzed.
