New Web Accessibility Tool Free to Developers
Deque Systems announced the global launch of Worldspace FireEyes, a next generation web accessibility tool that ensures that both static and dynamic content within a web portfolio are compliant with accessibility standards, such as Section 508, WGAG 1.0, and WGAG 2.0. FireEyes is an easy-to-use plug-in that is fully integrated with one of the most popular and powerful web development tools, FireBug, a Firefox extension.
FireEyes solves the problem of error reproducibility by allowing developers to record scripts that show the exact sequence of steps required to trigger a problem and share it with others so they can see exactly how the problem happened.
It is also the only tool that automatically builds a single report that covers multiple pages or entire use cases. This automatic analysis feature provides developers a comprehensive list of issues to fix by providing a transcript of the entire session viewed in a single, drillable report. FireEyes can be used for general debugging, as well. It does all of this, in real time, during development activities, functional testing, and even active deployment.
