Access to the information and communication technology for people with disabilities as well as elderly people is an important prerequisite for their social inclusion. With the advance of the e-learning platforms and recent regulations of the European Union, which impose conformance to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) for web applications of public institutions, Learning Management Systems (LMSs) have to be accessible to enable people with disabilities to participate in the learning and educational processes. This article compares the accessibility of the following LMSs Moodle and АTutor for people with disabilities, according to the WCAG 2.1 standard criteria of different levels of compliance. The visual, hearing and motor impairments are included in this comparative analysis. The concluding purpose is to дevelop an e-leaning project that will increase e-health and medical digital literacy among population with particular emphasis on the people with disabilities, elderly people and children. The proposed project will be used as a reference for healthcare and educational institutions to identify the essential adjustments needed to integrate accessibility into their e-learning courses.
