Toolbars and Add-ons

The following add-ons and toolbars are ones that we often use when developing a website. They are not required, but rather suggested. We cannot provide support for these, so please use and support at your own risk.

  • Web Developer Toolbar for Firefox
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/web-developer/
    Adds a menu and a toolbar with various web developer tools, including an accessibility tester.
  • Firebug Add-on for Firefox
    http://getfirebug.com/
    Firebug integrates with Firefox to put a wealth of web development tools at your fingertips while you browse.
  • Firefox Jetpack Image Editor
    For Firefox users, this will install an image editor (Pixlr) that can be used to make basic edits to images, including resizing.

  • Google Picasa
    A free image management application from Google. Exporting lets you resize your photos while controlling the JPEG compression (image quality) introduced by your applied photo edits. The result is newly resized copies of your photos, saved to any location on your hard drive. During the export process, you can adjust both the 'Image Size Options' and the 'Image Quality' settings in the 'Export to Folder' screen.

Web Accessibility Resources

  • Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)
    http://www.w3.org/WAI/
    The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) develops strategies, guidelines, and resources to help make the Web accessible to people with disabilities. WAI resources are intended to provide basic information for people who are new to Web accessibility.
  • WAVE
    http://wave.webaim.org/
    WAVE is a free web accessibility evaluation tool provided by WebAIM. It is used to aid humans in the web accessibility evaluation process. Rather than providing a complex technical report, WAVE shows the original web page with embedded icons and indicators that reveal the accessibility information within your page.
