WAVE Browser Extensions

WAVE ExtensionThe WAVE Chrome and Firefox extensions allows you to evaluate web content for accessibility issuesdirectly within Chrome and Firefox browsers. Because the extension runs entirely within your web browser,no information is sent to the WAVE server. This ensures 100%private and secure accessibility reporting. The extension can check intranet, password-protected, dynamically generated, or sensitive web pages. Also, because the WAVE extension evaluates the rendered version of your page,locally displayed stylesanddynamically-generated content from scripts or AJAXcan be evaluated.
