About BIK

BIK is an acronym of „barrierefrei informieren und kommunizieren“ (accessible information and communication). Since 2002, the aim of the BIK projects has been to improve the accessibility of web and intranet sites and thereby, increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities. 

Previous BIK projects have developed and updated the “BITV-Test”. The BITV test procedure checks the accessibility of web sites and applications according to the German BITV directive, a German variant of the internationally recognized web accessibility standard WCAG 2.0.

The current BIK project is called “BIK für Alle” (BIK for all). Its main aim is to increase awareness of accessibility and promote its application in sectors of society where it is currently not mandatory. As part of this project, a German language WCAG test procedure has been developed as a variant of BITV test (German version).

The project is funded by the Bundesministerium für Arbeit und Soziales (the German Federal Ministry for Employment and Social Affairs).
