Hi all - Thought you might be interested in the toolbar if not the webinar.

There's a free webcast next Thursday about a Firefox toolbar created by WebAIM for testing webpage accessibility - "it is available to you anywhere you can go with the Firefox browser... anywhere on the Web including behind a password, in any Learning Management System and even on your own hard drive."

Here's the main page for the toolbar:  http://wave.webaim.org/toolbar

Thanks!
Christina

Besides learning about designing Web pages that will be fully accessible to people with disabilities, how can I tell if what I did really works?

The best way for you to do that is by obtaining and using a Firefox toolbar called, WAVE. Because it is a toolbar, it is available to you anywhere you can go with the Firefox browser...anywhere on the Web including behind a password, in any Learning Management System and even on your own hard drive.
EASI is hosting a Webinar on the WAVE toolbar for Firefox presented by Jared Smith from WebAIM which created and maintains this simple and free tool.

The free Webinar  is on October 4 at 11 Pacific, Noon Mountain, 1 Central and 2 PM Eastern
