WAVE – Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool

  • WAVE – Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool (opens new window) - WAVE is a free web accessibility evaluation tool provided by WebAIM. It is used to aid humans in the web accessibility evaluation process. Rather than providing a complex technical report, WAVE shows the original web page with embedded icons and indicators that reveal the accessibility of that page.
