Information about Evaluation and Repair software
(e.g. Bobby, WAVE, A-Prompt, InFocus, AccVerify, PageScreamer, Lift, etc., posted January 2002)
Center for Applied Specail Technology provides Bobby, a means of checking individual pages or sites for accessibility.
Stand-alone tool developed at the University of Toronto. Developers install the program on their own computer, then specify which file they would like to evaluate. The program then takes the user through a wizard-style succession of questions and answers. At the completion of the process, the file is updated to incorporate the changes that the developer has made (if any) at the recommendation of the software. Although the software makes recommendations based upon sound princples, the actual changes to the file are made by the developer, so the developer still needs to have a solid understanding of the underlying principles.
