Maybe I'm just behind in my glut of email, but one of my students just sent me this ...
"The future is here, it just isn't widely distributed yet."
I was going to proceed with Lab 6 and validate a website through WebEXACT which
is mentioned in the course only to find this message on the website:
"PLEASE NOTE: As of February 1, 2008 the Watchfire WebXact and Bobby Online
products will no longer be publicly available. As an IBM Company, Watchfire
will continue to invest in accessibility through the IBM Rational Policy Tester
Accessibility Edition solution (previously WebXM Accessibility Module). This
enterprise platform leverages the Bobby technology alongside a next-generation
scan engine, providing the accessibility community with technology that allows
users to scan, test, remediate and understand compliance with current
accessibility legislation. Watchfire is working closely with the IBM Human
Ability and Accessibility Center to continue to evolve this product line to
meet this growing market demand."
