3. Tools for Accessibility Checking

  • Opera - an essential web browser for anyone checking accessibility issues.
  • Lynx - the classic text web browser.
  • Betsie - developed by the BBC for use with their own pages. Auntie Beeb seems to have dropped this facility but it can still be found on SourceForge: http://betsie.sourceforge.net/
  • Vischeck - download the Photoshop plugin (works with Paint Shop Pro and others). A screen grab can be quickly transformed to a colour-blind view.
  • A-Prompt - a downloadable, and free, checker for your master copy on disk.
  • Sizer - a free utility by Brian Apps that allows you to quickly resize your browser window to 1024x768, 800x600 or even 640x480!
