Abstract: The use of new technologies has been increasing during last years in education. Specifically, the use of e-learning systems provides for students more freedom to learn through Internet when and where they prefer in each moment. However, e-learning tools are not perfect tools. Most of these e-learning tools present accessibility barriers, so not all students are able to use them completely in their studies. The goal of this paper is to evaluate if Moodle e-learning web tool is accessible for visually impaired people using assistive technologies like screen readers. The evaluation has been divided in two main objectives. Firstly, Moodle was evaluated from a user perspective.The interaction of a blind student with the system was simulated and two screen readers were used. Secondly, this tool was evaluated from an accessibility expert perspective and it was analysed if Moodle is in accordance to ATAG and WCAG W3C guidelines.
