Editors' Review

Don't be fooled by this toolbar's commonplace appearance; it comes jam-packed with invaluable resources for Web designers looking to ensure that their pages are accessible to those with disabilities.

Web Accessibility Toolbar's button-rich interface appears like any other toolbar in your browser window. Each button on the bar reveals a host of links to help a Web developer design an accessible Web page. The Validate button revealed links to verify a page's URLs using third-party tools. The Structure button allowed us to view specific content such as headings and frame borders. With the click of a button, you can manipulate a Web page's color scheme, text size, screen size--the list goes on and on. But what makes this toolbar so special are the simulation features, which allow the user to view a page as someone with a visual impairment such as glaucoma or macular degeneration would see it.

Though we encountered a minor stability issue that caused our IE to stop working, it didn't prevent us from appreciating all this toolbar has to offer. We highly recommend this toolbar for anyone interested in designing Web pages suitable for viewing by any Web surfer.
