Dear Web Users:

It is true sometime Bobby does not work and Message comes "Connection Error" It use to be free software sometime back but now it cost US DOllars 99 per user. They only way to check whole website at once is with downloaded Bobby software only. So I will suggest we must buy this software if Web accessibility is important to us.

Checking one by one page by using online bobby is really tiring job and it often gives "Connection Error" message too.

It seems to be working OK on the pages I've just run through it. What is the address of the page they were trying to test?
