Check Page for Accessibility

Dreamweaver now offers an evaluation tool to check Web pages for their accessibility to users of assistive devices, including those with disabilities. The first of its kind for professional Web authoring software, the Dreamweaver 'Check Page for Accessibility' extension alerts developers to accessibility problems and their location in source code, referring them to relevant W3C guidelines. Further, the report ensures that developers are reminded of the W3C's top priority guidelines for subjective design decisions. This Dreamweaver extension will prove an invaluable complement to existing Web-based evaluations tools, such as the 'Bobby' check (<a href="" target="_new"></a>), a standard online benchmark for accessibility. For information about additional accessibility features of Dreamweaver, please see 'Accessibility Features in Macromedia Products' (<a href="" target="_new"></a>). Further information about the W3C guidelines for accessible Web content can be found at <a href="" target="_new"></a>. Be sure to check out UsableNet's '<a href="" target="_blank">508 Accessibility Suite</a>' for these features and more!

Exchange Support Forum: <a href="" target="_blank"></a> A comparable version of Check Page for Accesibility is included as part of Dreamweaver MX and Dreamweaver MX 2004. Users of these products do not need to install this extension.

UI Access:
Access the command by choosing Command > Check Page for Accessibility.
