The Visual ARIA Favlet<http://whatsock.com/training/matrices/visual-aria.htm> can be used to display the calculated accessible name.

Subject: FF add-on for displaying accessible names ??

Hi, I found a FireFox add-on that shows me landmarks, though it does not pick up on the semantic html5 tags unless I specifically add the role attribute. It has helped me understand how landmarks are seen.

Is there a similar add-on that would maybe show me the accessible name on mouseover instead of the the standard title attribute?

I know about the WAVE testing site and that works to see them but when auto-generating accessible names and tweaking code it would be useful if I could easily see what the resulting accessible name is on my dev machine.

If such an add-on exist, I did not find it.
