Assitive Technology

In the world of IT, which is fast pace and constantly changing, it is an unfortunate occurrence that many groups of users are often left out, one of those groups in particular are those who are faced with learning disabilities, physical handicaps or both. One tool that I found to be helpful when utilizing the web with this particular group is Cynthia Says. Cynthia Says is a web database offered by HiSoftware and is used to analyze how handicap accessible a website is. To utilize the database, simply follow the link below and upon reaching the page, type in the URL of the website in question, check the boxes corresponding to what it is that you would like tested and click the Test My Site. The database will then generate a report that will inform you on the strengths and weaknesses of the site in mind. Enjoy!
