This may be old news to many out there, but I didn't see it after
searching the archives. It would appear that the Microsoft Office
Accessible Web Publishing Wizard from the University of Illinois at
Urbana/Champaign is no longer a free tool available to any who need it.

 

Here's the link:

Of course, they no longer offer the version 1.0 for download, and I
can't find any of my copies I downloaded a while back either.

 

My own personal beliefs and philosophies regarding teasing a group of
individuals with something free, and then yanking it away to only charge
outrageous sums of money aside, are there any alternative tools that
anyone has found, preferably for free? Unfortunately, being in a highly
de-centralized University in the middle of one of our worst budget
crises does not bode well for purchasing tools such as this, especially
when the 1.0 version was free.
