Dear W3C Colleagues,


Some exciting news from Deque Systems today: We have announced the Open Source release of our award-winning accessibility rules engine. The Accessibility Engine, or aXe, is a compact JavaScript library that is open source and available on GitHub (https://github.com/dequelabs/axe-core). This library makes integration into any development and testing tool simple and quick. Use aXe with any JavaScript framework and any modern browser.


Deque has been invited to contribute the aXe open source library to the W3C WAI Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group (ERT WG), as work is under consideration there for a normative set of rules for evaluating WCAG 2.0 conformance.


For more information , please see: 



I am personally extremely excited about this development, and thrilled to be sharing this news.
