Adding to these constrains, the existing information is, not exclusively but especially, focused on Web contents. Attending to these matters, a checklist of proposals has been elaborated, and presented in this paper, that tries to cover these flaws, allowing for an evaluation of the accessibility of Integrated Development Environments (IDE), their capacity of generating accessible software - native software and not Web contents - and even the accessibility of the final product - the native software. Conceived through the reutilization and inspired on the general knowledge created by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), the drafts of this checklist are easily understandable and applicable.
