Abstract

We are currently experiencing the first global pandemic in the digital age due to the COVID-19 disease, caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. As we try to protect ourselves with isolation and social distancing measures, the digital tools for connecting with the world become more critical. Newborn health care, a critical public health problem everywhere, has been severely affected by the pandemic. Therefore, web-based tools could be an alternative to improve newborn care. For these reasons, we believe that web applications should have accessibility standards. To predict neonatal mortality, we have designed the web application - The Score Bebe ® - considering the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These accessibility studies will make it possible to contribute to more inclusive access for all people, including people with disabilities. It will also improve the web’s visibility in search engines and reuse the content in multiple formats or devices.
