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.

Developers face real problems trying to make dynamic websites and applications, like Facebook, accessible to everyone. The current generation of tools on the market doesn’t work with JavaScript or dynamic, event-based page content. FireEyes enables developers of rich, interactive sites and applications to ensure their creations are accessible to everyone.

FireEyes works well with static sites plus includes features specifically designed to address the needs of dynamically updating content. The company claims it is the only tool on the market that is fully JavaScript aware. It enables developers to instantly retest static content, dynamic content, and dynamic page updates, within seconds, while they are working, eliminating the long delays inherent in testing with legacy tools.

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.
