One company that has an excellent accessibility tool is SiteImprove out of Minneapolis. You can contact Kevin Rydberg, kry at siteimprove.com<mailto:kry at siteimprove.com>, for additional information. In the interest of complete disclosure, I will say that I occasionally do consulting for this company. But, before I did this, our University used their accessibility services for a web site, and we were very pleased.

Hi Jessica,

My colleague here at IU developed an Accessibility tool bar for Firefox called the Web Accessibility Quick Check Extension (W15YQC)<http://blrichwine.github.io/W15yQC/>. There is also the Web Accessibility Toolbar (WAT)<http://www.paciellogroup.com/resources/wat/> for IE. These will allow you to log in to the website and then run some automated checks page by page.

As Paul pointed out, many commercial tools indicate they have some ability to do this.

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,
