UIUC Web Accessibility Visualization Tool Beta 7


From: Jon Gunderson
Date: Apr 20, 2005 9:36AM

This is the last Beta version of the UIUC Web Accessibility
Visualization Tool. The students class will be ending in about
4 weeks, so this your last chance to provide feedback to the
students. After the class is finished I will
publish the tool as a FREE web service and make the source
code available to people who might want to continue
development of the tool or setup their own server. If you
think you might want to setup your own service or build upon
the students work, you may want to talk to the student soon
before they scatter to the winds of the real world. I will
also be trying to identify resources to continue the
development of the tool.
