Bobby by Watchfire

Looking at a web site, I notice a note a link to something that was "Bobby Accessible," but I had not heard of Bobby. A quick search took me to WatchFire's Bobby web site. The site helps you (a web designer) understand if your site meets accessibility guidelines, such as Section 508 and the W3C's WCAG. You can type in a URL and get a quick report on the site/page. A quick look at my site shows that I've got some errors messages to review and perhaps some things to fix. One thing I could do would be to create an alternate web site that is Bobby Approved. Looks like I've got some work ahead of me.

Is your web site -- your digital library -- Bobby Approved? Is it accessible to everyone? Time to check it out.
