New tools in the making: Accessibility Analysis in Rails

I am working on an accessibility analysis kit which you will be able to use as part of an automated test procedure in Ruby on Rails. RAAKT is a Ruby port of PAAKT (the Python Accessibility Analysis Kit) and can be used for assessing basic accessibility of HTML documents.

Currently I am working on an accessibility analysis kit which you will be able to use as part of an automated test procedure in the Ruby on Rails framework. RAAKT is a Ruby port of PAAKT (the Python Accessibility Analysis Kit) and can be used for assessing basic accessibility of HTML documents. The focus is on machine measurable aspects which means that there is a huge disclaimer with regards to content. Just because you pass all tests in RAAKT does not mean you are completely accessible. It will, however, be possible to get a feel for basic accessibility issues in your web application. The idea is to make it possible to integrate RAAKT into your automated functional testing framework.
