Web accessibility evaluation tools are software programs or online services that help determine if a Web site meets accessibility guidelines. While Web accessibility evaluation tools can significantly reduce the time and effort to evaluate Web sites, no tool can automatically determine the accessibility of Web sites.
Before using this list of evaluation tools, please read "Selecting Web Accessibility Evaluation Tools", which provides background for using the search effectively.
The W3C WAI list of Web accessibility evaluation tools is available through:
- Complete List - to show all tools in the list maintained by WAI

[The information in this draft list may not be up to date and has not been reviewed yet by tool vendors. We will be requesting feedback from tool developers on the information in this database.]
W3C does not endorse specific vendor products. Inclusion of products in this reference list does not indicate endorsement by W3C. Products and search criteria are listed with no quality rating.

W3C does not verify the accuracy of these claims. The list is not a review of evaluation tools, nor a complete or definitive listing of all tools.
