Please accept my apologies for not being able to attend this meeting but I
would really love to learn the results of your deliberations as it is a
subject we have been discussing in the lab.
My list includes
WAVE from webaim
WebbIE with Thunder screenreader
Opera in several modes
Firefox Mozilla with Firefox Accessibility Extension inc. FAE from Illinois
and Web developer extension plus Accessibar.
Internet Explorer with Web Accessibility Toolbar.

I am not a web developer but use Dreamweaver to put the LexDis website
together and Xerte to show any flash files and the Illinois wizard for
PowerPoints - I am now testing assistive technologies with Vista and just
hope the team can offer the illinois wizard in a Vista version ASAP!

Hope this helps and I am looking forward to learning from your
deliberations, as I have to evaluate many Web 2.0 sites over the coming
months and would love to have a useful toolkit to hand!

Have a very happy Christmas and New Year.

Best wishes E.A.

Topic: Good Tools, Not So Good Tools
Speaker: Discussion - come and contribute
Date: Thursday, December 20, 2007
Time: 11:30a.m. - 1:00p.m.
Location: Mary Gates Hall, Room 015L

Come join us for a discussion of what tools help us create
accessible Web sites, and which make reaching that goal more
difficult than it needs to be. This discussion supports
work Terry Thompson is doing to create a central UW Web site
about accessibility. Here is Terry's query from a message he
sent to the Access email list:

Does anyone have tools that they utilize in their
development work that they feel either support
accessibility well, or do NOT support accessibility well?
By "tools" I mean literally anything - web authoring
tools, content management systems, toolbars, plug-ins,
accessibility checkers - We're hoping to put together a
fairly comprehensive list.
