The new version of the Firefox Accessibility Extension 1.3 from University of Illinois has a built-in accessibility reporting features.


The accessibility extension can also create DHTML reports (includes content generated through Javascripting) with the Functional Accessibility Evaluator (FAE) Reporting mechanism.  


The reports for both Firefox Extension and FAE are based on the use of the iCITA Best Practices to implement Section 508 and W3C WCAG accessibility requirements.
