The Web Accessibility Toolbar has been developed to aid manual examination of web pages for a variety of aspects of accessibility. It consists of a range of functions that:
- identify components of a web page
- facilitate the use of 3rd party online applications
- simulate user experiences
- provide links to references and additional resources.
We value all feedback received. Please contact us about any functionality that may not work or other suggestions for improvement by emailing [email protected].
The Web Accessibility Toolbar is Freeware.
You may use the AIS Accessibility Toolbar Software (the “Software”) for your personal, non-commercial use to help you determine the accessibility of your Web content. For commercial use, please contact us.
