Free Software for Section 508 Compliance

The General Services Administration is now offering at their Section 508 site their free STEP508 software to help government agencies prioritize what they need to do to make their Web sites accessible.

The Simple Tool for Error Prioritization for Section 508 compliance is now available for federal and other Webmasters to use. This electronic tool uses the output of Section508 compliance tools and evaluates the accessibility errors to determine both the severity of the errors and the effort to fix them. In addition, STEP508 provides a metric that can be tracked over time to determine the level of your Web site's conformance to the 508 guidelines.
