In case you haven't heard... Here's some news from the ATRC at
University of Toronto ... A-Prompt is beyond Beta!    Help files and

A-Prompt Toolkit Version 1 web accessibility validation and repair
utility is now downloadable (free of charge) at:


Developed by the accessibility experts at the Adaptive Technology
Resource Centre (ATRC), University of Toronto, this standalone tool will
check and repair HTML for conformance with WAI Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines 1.0 or Section 508 Standards. If an accessibility problem is
detected, A-Prompt displays the necessary dialogs and guides the user to
fix the problem. When all potential problems have been resolved, the
repaired HTML code is inserted into the document and a new version of
the file may be saved to the author's hard drive.

This software is made available through a joint collaboration between
the Adaptive Technology Resource Centre (ATRC) at the University of
Toronto and the TRACE Center at the University of Wisconsin. These
research centres are dedicated to improving the accessibility and
usability of information technologies by people with disabilities.

We are looking for opportunities to promote use of the A-Prompt - please

more information related to this project.
