Dear all,

I have recently developed a Web Accessibility evaluator in a single XSLT
file (namely WAEX). You can find it at http://www.it.uc3m.es/vlc/waex.html

Though it is only a single XSLT file ...

     * wcag.xsl is suitable for any XSLT processor. Just download it and
     test it against the pages you want to evaluate and you will obtain
     accessibility reports. I render thanks to the public W3C XSLT Servlet
     for their service.

     * No need to install specific ad-hoc applications (like HERA, WAVE,
     WebXACT, ATRC, TAW or similar ones).

     * By the way, it would be nice if all these tools checked the same
     things!! ...

     * Automated checkpoints from W3C's WAI's WCAG (priority 1, 2 and 3)
     are collected.

     * Some other automated checkpoints not initially considered in W3C's
     WCAG are included (at the AAA+ level).

     * EARL reports could be easily got with simple modifications. (Please,
     contact me if you are interested on collaborating).

     * Explanation links are provided justifying each detected barrier.

     * Customization easily achieved by parameters.

     * Accessibility reports which are accessible themselves.

     * Though not suitable for non XHTML, an XHTML repair process can
     enable XSLT appliance.

Please, use the extended interface to experience it if your web page is 
non XHTML.
