Browser Add-ons

Web Accessibility Tools - Browser Add Ons 

Use these add-ons to make sure your website is accessible and compatible across all browsers.

 

Firefox Add Ons 

Firefox Accessibility Extension - Illinois Center for Information Technology Accessibility 

The tool supports people with disabilities and web developers in navigating, styling and accessing text equivalents that are useful to people with disabilities. Developers can use the tool to test their web resources for functional accessibility features based on the iCITA HTML Best Practices. 

Firefox Accessibility Project - Access Firefox

Access Firefox presents and showcases some of the many accessibility tools and features that are available for the free Firefox web browser. 

WAVE Toolbar - WebAIM 

The WAVE Toolbar provides button options and a menu that will modify the current web page to reveal the underlying accessibility information. It provides an easy-to-use, yet powerful mechanism for evaluating the accessibility and usability of web content for people with disabilities. Also available in online and downloadable formats.

 

Accessibility in Opera

Despite its small market share, the Opera browser is in many ways the most advanced browser on the market, and the most accessibility friendly. Much of what other browsers use add-ons and plugins to accomplish, Opera can do natively. 

 

Microsoft Internet Explorer Add Ons

Web Accessibility Toolbar - Vision Australia 

The Web Accessibility Toolbar has been developed to aid manual examination of web pages for a variety of aspects of accessibility. It consists of a range of functions that can identify components of a web page, facilitate the use of 3rd party online applications, simulate user experiences, and provide links to references and additional resources.
