My personal obsession with prion diseases with smidges of music I like and rescue dog advocacy from a disabled Oregonian.

Bobby Online Free Portal

This free service will allow you to test web pages and help expose and repair barriers to accessibility and encourage compliance with existing accessibility guidelines, such as Section 508 and the W3C's WCAG.

Well, I have a ton of improvements to make this site more accesible to alter-abled people. Why bother? Bobby says...

Is your online business accessible to all individuals, including those with disabilities? There are many reasons to make your site accessible and protect your online brand:

Demonstrate good corporate citizenship by not discriminating against people with disabilities.
Reduce the risk of litigation, costly settlements, unfavorable publicity, and potential loss of business.
Capitalize on large market opportunity: over 10% of the online population is disabled (750 million people worldwide, 55 million Americans). According to iCAN, people with disabilities have a discretionary income of more than $188 billion dollars.
Comply with federally regulated guidelines and best practices. Governments worldwide have enacted laws and regulations that require websites be accessible.
Provide access to wireless devices.
Accommodate an ageing population. As the population gets older, they experience similar issues to those with disabilities.
