Online Accessibility Testing Tools

Interested in testing the accessibility of your site? Here's a couple of free online tools that will get you started.

Accessibility - IT Dashboard


A friend recently asked me about the accessibility of a new US government website he'd seen. He knew I'd been following the various discussions about federal government accessibility. Like others I've looked at, IT Dashboard doesn't do very well.

WCAG 2 - Unofficial Executive Summary

The City University Web Team has produced what they call an executive summary of the WCAG 2.0 in less than 100,000 words. It's a very well done summation of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 that is significantly under 100,000 words. That's more than I can say about the original, which at least feels much longer than that.

Accessibility Recommendation Comparison


I've been working on comparisons of the WCAG 1.0, WCAG 2.0, and Section 508. I thought a few of my readers might find the results interesting, so I've posted it. Due to theme limitations, I found it easier to give it its own page. Go take a look at the Accessibility Comparisons. Please note, this project isn't finalized. The document will be updated as I have time.

Web Design Resources - Updated

I was putting together a list of resources that I regularly use for someone, and I thought it might be helpful for someone else.
