This tool is developed by WebAIM (Web Accessibility In Mind). This is the tool that the Office of Civil Rights will use to check your site. It only does one page at a time and will show all issues right on the web page that is being checked. Ultimately, this tool should be used to check a page for accessibility as it is created and edited.
