WAVE is a web accessibility evaluation tool developed by WebAIM.org. It provides visual feedback about the accessibility of your web content by injecting icons and indicators into your page. No automated tool can tell you if your page is accessible, but WAVE facilitates human evaluation and educates about accessibility issues. All analysis is done entirely within the Edge browser allowing secure evaluation of intranet, local, password protected, and other sensitive web pages.

To run a WAVE report, simply click on the WAVE icon to the right of your browser address bar, or select "WAVE this page" from the context menu.

WAVE errors align with WCAG 2.1 failures. The WAVE interface facilitates human evaluation of many other aspects of accessibility and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and Section 508 compliance.

Fácil de usar y con reportes detallados.

WAVE is a great tool for website managers to quickly determine potential accessibility issues with their site, with context sensitive links to relevant reference material from WCAG, well organised output that allows inspection of specific issues in detail. The tool identifies a huge number of potential issues, but it's up to you to decide the relative magnitude and what needs to be fixed first. SO it's no magic wand, but it provides all the information required to make a big difference to your sites accessibility.
