Pros and Cons of Web Accessibility Validation Tools

Tuesday, November 15, 2005

How do you know if your web site is accessible? The increased interest in creating accessible web sites has spawned several products which can be utilized to "test" a site for accessibility and provide feedback to the designer/developer in order to promote a more accessible design. Is one tool better than another? Can I be assured that my web site is accessible if it "passes" one or more of these tests? This session will explore the various tools that are available and discuss the pro's and con's of their use as well as "tips" for evaluating the accessibility of web sites.
