Hi, Jon,

I'm forwarding your messages to wai-eo-editors & CCing Shadi, the document editor.

A couple of notes:
* Shadi & EOWG are revising this page, along with other pages in the Evaluation Resource Suite. Shadi may hold off on edits and additions until the new pages are complete this fall.
* Most WAI pages have at the bottom the e-mail address where comments should be sent. More about sending "Feedback on Specific Documents" is at:

Here are some corrections to the page:
"Evaluation, Repair, and Transformation Tools for Web Content


I think this should also be placed in the "Filter and
Transformation Tools" section of the page, instead of "Repair


"Powerpoint Accessibility Wizard
>From Division of Rehabilitation - Education Services,
University of Illinois. "Accessibility Wizard simplifies the
task of converting PowerPoint presentations to text pure HTML
... and automates much of the conversion of Power Point
Presentations to an HTML format that includes required
accessibility information." (20 April 2001)."

The Wizard is designed to create highlighly accessible HTML
versions of Microsoft Word and Powerpoint documents that meet
or exceed Section 508 and W3C WCAG 1.0 Double-A accessibility

with a wide range of web development experience and knowledge
of web technologies, from professional web developers to

Mozilla/Firefox Accessibility Extension

The Mozilla/Firefox Accessibility Extension adds features to
Mozilla or Firefox to make it easier for people with
disabilities to view and navigate web content. The extension
can be used by people with disabilities to navigate the
structure of a HTML web resource. It can be used by authors to
check their structural markup and styling to make sure it
provides functional accessibility to people with disabilities.
The extension helps authors test their use of structural
markup to help people with disabilities view the main topics
of a web resource (H1-H6), find collections of related links,
and navigate links. The extension also makes it easy to check
and apply alternative styling of a web resource by making it
easy turn off author style sheets, apply high contrast and
user stylesheets, and increase and decrease text size.  The
extension also provide new keyboard commands to navigate
document structure for people who cannot or have difficulty
using the mouse.
