Web Accessibility Tester

I am cur­rently build­ing a site for a gov­ern­ment agency. When the gov­ern­ment is con­cerned, acces­si­bil­ity isn’t just a nov­elty item, it’s the law.

Don’t believe me? Check out:

And on pub­lic com­pa­nies, Tar­get had to pay mil­lions because of a law­suit against the usabil­ity of their website.

Now that I have your atten­tion, here is a tool to get your sites up to speed with acces­si­bil­ity. I tested my blog on that site and I found acces­si­bil­ity issues.
