This Week's Featured Advertisement: JAWS Inspect - Your Visual Resource for Accessibility Testing

JAWS Inspect Logo. JAWS Inspect vastly simplifies accessibility and JAWS compatibility testing. Without the distraction of speech or the complex feature set of the end-user product, Inspect uses transcripts of JAWS output to quickly diagnose issues and share them easily across quality control and compliance systems.

If you are employed by, or lead an Organization committed to providing manual, accessibility test services for web content using the JAWS screenreader, but your testing and developer teams have individuals who are not JAWS users, then the newly released JAWS Inspect Solution is your missing ingredient for optimizing your test processes while maximizing your accessibility efforts.

This one of a kind testing tool vastly simplifies accessibility and JAWS compatibility testing, while removing complex feature sets of the end-user.

With its newly released "say all" feature and "speech viewer", this tool now offers visual functionality beyond the scope of web testing!

Imagine being able to view what JAWS is speaking to the end user across countless applications?

JAWS Inspect uses transcripts of JAWS output to quickly diagnose issues and share them easily across quality control and compliance systems, providing a visual representation of the user experience to the sighted developer.

Benefits include, but are not limited to:

For more information, or to schedule a demonstration for you and your organization, please email accessibility@flying-blind.com ✉ or call +1 (216) 381-8107 ☎ today. We're standing by to assist you in simplifying your web accessibility test process.
