Before and After Demo for Website Access Updated: Web Accessibility Initiative

The W3C WAI Education and Outreach Working Group (EOWG) has updated the Before and After Demonstration (BAD). BAD is useful for presentations, for learning about specific web accessibility barriers and their implications, and as an example of conformance evaluation reports. BAD shows an inaccessible website and a retrofitted version of the same website with the accessibility barriers fixed. BAD has in-line notes ("annotations") for you to get more information, and reports that list the accessibility problems for each page.

There is a 'wish list' for improving and expanding BAD in the future – such as adding WAI-ARIA, video, and scripting. Please send any comments or questions on BAD to the publicly-archived list:
