FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, March 26, 2010, RESTON, Va. -

Deque Systems announced today that it is developing a next generation web accessibility tool to help web developers find accessibility issues easily, fix them rapidly and establish the test scaffolding to ensure that their application stays accessible and compliant with web standards like Section 508 and WGAG 2.0.

Unlike older tools that don't understand JavaScript and dynamic, event-based page content, Deque's new Firefox/Firebug extension will help developers of rich, interactive applications ensure that their masterpieces are accessible to all.

Key features of this new web accessibility tool include:

  • Integration with Firefox/Firebug
  • Browser content visually marked-up to make the impact of accessibility issues visible to developers without disabilities
  • Script tab for editing, playing, testing, and replaying recorded scripts
  • Options for choosing which web standards will be included in tests
  • Reporting for current document events and violations
  • Transcript of all pages visited in a session
  • ...And more!

    We are initiating some accessibility initiatives at the American Library Association, and would appreciate being able to beta test this tool for you. Would we be able to install it in our training room/usability lab and introduce it to staff members who prepare content for the web, or would its use be restricted to one person?

    Thanks!
