Here is a tool we are developing at Illinois to test WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA requirements.

AInspector Sidebar works on the live DOM of Firefox and work on any page you can view in the Browser.

AInspector Sidebar supports two rule sets one for HTML4 legacy accessibility techniques and one for more modern HTML5+ARIA accessibility techniques, use the "preferences "button and then the "Evaluation" tab to select which ruleset you want to use.

The latest version of AInspector Sidebar for Friefox:

Would be interested in any comments or feedback you have about the tool.

Good morning,

Does anyone know of a way to test web accessibility for a site that you have to log into? I love WAVE, but it doesn't work for me to test course pages in our LMS that require a log in.

Thank you,
