  • Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Demo: The Before and After Demonstration is a multi-page resource that shows an inaccessible website and a retrofitted version of this same website. Each web page includes inline annotations that can be activated to highlight some of the key accessibility barriers or repairs. Each web page is also accompanied by an evaluation report to inform the developers on the level of conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
  • Accessible jQuery-UI Components Demo (The Paciello Group: This page contains some interactive controls that you would normally only find in desktop applications. Examples of such controls are tab lists, menu bars, sliders, and tree views. These controls are often operated using the arrow keys, which means your screen reader must temporarily switch off virtual navigation mode in order to interact with them. Some screen readers will automatically switch between modes depending on the control's type, while others require you to manually turn virtual mode off.
  • DOJO Toolkit Demos: Dojo saves you time and scales with your development process, using web standards as its platform. It's the toolkit experienced developers turn to for building high quality desktop and mobile web applications.
