WAVE Extensions for Firefox and Chrome

The WAVE extensions for Firefox and Chrome will allow you to evaluate the accessibility of your web pages directly within your browser. Because the extensions evaluate the rendered version of your page, they are able to check intranet, password-protected, dynamically generated, or sensitive web pages.

Because of the simplicity and convenience of the browser extensions, Many users may prefer to use the extension as their primary WAVE manual inspection tool.

How to Use

  1. Install the Chrome or Firefox extension for WAVE
  2. Open up Pope Tech and navigate to your most recent scan results
  3. Select the Open Page button to open your website in another tab
  4. Open the WAVE extension by activating it

In some instances, the standard WAVE evaluation is unable to render web pages because of technology conflicts between the web page and WAVE. In these instances, the WAVE extensions are invaluable tools to assist as you work on your accessibility path.
