Evaluate web accessibility within the Chrome browser.
WAVE is a web accessibility evaluation tool developed by WebAIM.org. It provides visual feedback about the accessibility of your web content by injecting icons and indicators into your page. No automated tool can tell you if your page is accessible, but WAVE facilitates human evaluation and educates about accessibility issues. All analysis is done entirely within the Chrome browser allowing secure valuation of intranet, local, password protected, and other sensitive web pages.
To run a WAVE report, simply click on the WAVE icon to the right of your browser address bar. Click the icon again or refresh the page to remove the WAVE interface. You can also trigger a WAVE report by pressing Control + Shift + U (Command + Shift + U on Mac) or by activating the "WAVE this page" context (right click) menu item.
Version 1.0.5 adds the shortcut key, context menu, allows analysis of local pages, and fixes other various bugs.
Version 1.0.7 addresses a Chrome bug where WAVE sidebar results would be inaccurate across different tabs.
Version 1.0.9 fixes a Chrome bug where icons would not scroll into view when clicked in the sidebar or Code panel.
