The selected tools are surveyed and categorised against a list of criteria such as: Context in which they should be used; Potential audience; Specific strengths; Specific weaknesses; Cost; Ease of use; Quality.

As a result of this collection, an evaluation report together with specific recommendations in terms of usability is available and there is a possibility for a broader public to comment on the results.
