Section 508 Evaluation Tools


From: Kitzzy Aviles

My department would like to put together the following:

"a documented methodology with respect to the various 508 checks, for instance:


(a) A text equivalent for every non-text element shall be provided (e.g., via alt tags, longdesc, or in element content).

TOOL(S): - manual check, utilities, software?
Use Dreamweaver utility to check for?
Use Bobby to check for? etc."

Basically, whats the best method/tool to test each individual standard as we know that not everything can be tested with just one method/tool. Is something like this already out there that I could use or to help me get started? I have a pretty good idea of what these are, but I figured I'd ask before begining the whole thing from scratch. Thanks
