Hi WebAIM folks,

Since there was some discussion on the WebAIM list about the Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool List, I'm sending the update below here.

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

An updated interface for WAI's Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools List is now available at:

Changes since the Draft posted in October include:
* Information on the accessibility of the tool itself is added under Detailed information for each tool
* Filter options are simplified
* The URL/web address for each tool is listed
* Anchors/permalinks are provided for each tool listing
* The introductory text is revised and includes a link to Selecting Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools <http://www.w3.org/WAI/eval/selectingtools>;

We invite evaluation tool vendors to submit information about your tool through:
To update information about your tool, see "Edit an entry".

Please note that W3C does not endorse specific products. Information in the Tools List is provided by vendors and others. See the Important Disclaimer at <http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/tools/index.html#disclaimer>;

As always, we welcome suggestions for improvements to the Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools List. In the footer is a link to provide feedback to the publicly archived list: <EMAIL REMOVED>

Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid cross-postings where possible.
