In this paper, the authors analyze automatic validation software compatible with the guidelines of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 in an authenticated environment. To the evaluation it was utilized as a test platform the authenticated environment of Moodle, which is an open source platform created for educational environments. Initially, a brief conceptualization about accessibility and the operation of these guidelines was described, and then the software to be tested was chosen: the WAVE. In the next step, the tool's operation was valued and the study's analysis was made, which allowed the comparison between the testable errors of WAVE with the guidelines of WCAG 2.0.
