Re: Bringing accessibility into the development process(request for feedback).

Thank's for your reply. I am not sure I completely understand the FAE so
forgive me if some of these assumptions are wrong. Some issues I found
developers to have with online tools in general are:

1. They are online meaning that it takes too much time to test a
single page you are developing.
2. They require manual intervention to do the test (which takes time).
3. They typically provide feedback that you have to be able to
interpret to make use of. E.g. some warnings from the FAE may be
irrelevant but it is hard to know if you don't know accessibility.

Is it possible to integrate FAE with functional testing tools such as Watir,
HTMLUnit or Selenium?

What type of user do you see using the FAE?
