"The Web accessibility seminar was informative and provided valuable information on tools and resources for making Web sites accessible and about overall Web accessibility issues," said Janet Remley, who works for California's Department of General Services, and attended a free seminar in Sacramento. "As a Macromedia Dreamweaver user, I was particularly interested in the new Section 508 extension. Representatives from both Macromedia and UsableNet were readily available to answer my questions about re-designing Web sites to address accessibility."
The accessibility extension for Dreamweaver is available on both the UsableNet site http://www.usablenet.com/macromedia/index.htm and on the Macromedia accessibility resource center at http://www.macromedia.com/macromedia/accessibility /.
