WAusers application is one component of the WAhelper Web accessibility testing suite.

WAusers serves for managing Web accessibility testing sites where users can register, create their own Web accessibility testing projects, and log into all their projects using a single global password.

Web pages are often designed without handicapped users in mind. Despite there exist Web accessibility guidelines such as W3C Accessibility Guidelines or U.S. Section 508 law, many Web designers are not aware about problems they cause to handicapped visitors of their pages. And even when a Web designer tries to make Web pages accessible, he may not be aware about all the obstacles handicapped users can meet.

- Software tools can be helpful here. Several Web accessibility checking tools already exist, but they have various problems:
Most of them are non-free and you can't use them freely to evaluate accessibility of your website effectively. Making things accessible means removing barriers and it is important to make the barriers as low as possible.
- New tests usually can't be added easily. An easily extensible and freely modifiable tool is needed so that its features can be improved efficiently. A good and maintained tool can make the whole process of making Web pages accessible more effective.
- The tools often don't try to go beyond semi-automated tests. But there are many accessibility problems which can't be detected, diagnosed and reported without human assistance. A tool helping humans with the testing process is needed.
