WAVE – Web Accessiblity Evaluation Tool

The WAVE Chrome extension allows you to evaluate web content for accessibility issues directly within Chrome. Because the extension runs entirely within your web browser, no information is sent to the WAVE server.unnamed

 

NVAccess – Free screen reader software for testing accessibility of the website

http://www.nvaccess.org/

NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is a free “screen reader” which enables blind and vision impaired people to use computers. It reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice. You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.

 

  • Use NVDA to test software or website accessibility.
  • Ensure text, links, graphics etc. can be “read” by a blind person.
  • NVDA is free.
  • Easy to download.
  • Speech viewer (text) available as well as screen reader voice.
