RampWEB Section 508 Toolbar

RampWEB is please to announce the release of the Section 508 Toolbar!

The purpose of the toolbar is to provide a tool that can assist you in the manual process of checking for Federal Section 508 compliance of Web sites and Web applications. This tool is not meant to certify or guarantee compliance but simply to help you in the evaluation process. Learn more about RampWEB's Section 508 compliance certification.

The evaluation of a web page has been broken down into four areas:

  • Validate Code - Check your page for HTML and CSS code validation.
  • Section 508 Tests - Perform manual tests that help to check for Section 508 compliance.
  • Internationlization - View the language specification and use tools to determine the readability of your page.
  • Page Information - Learn information about the page such as download speed, view the generated source, and page properties.

Download the toolbar now!


We would love to hear your feedback on the toolbar. Please contact us with any suggestions or enhancements ideas.


Functionality for the 508 toolbar has been adapted from Web Accessibility Toolbar functions developed by Steven Faulkner and Sofia Celic from Accessible Information Solutions.

Many thanks to Jim Thatcher for helping to write the detail Section 508 compliance explanation documents.
