Note: this tool is replaced by WCAG-EM Report Tool, version 3.0.0 (the code lives in the wai-wcag-em-report-tool repository)

WCAG-EM Report tool is an assistant that takes the user
through the process of evaluating the accessibility of a
website, using the WCAG-EM Evaluation Methodology. The Report
Tool runs entirely on the client and so it can be used offline
and in any server configuration available to you.

The Report Tool does not save files to a server or in local
storage. Rather, load and save functions are available for
storing an evaluation to your local file system.

Important references:

The official released version of the Report Tool can be found at An example of the latest (unapproved by EO) version is available at

See Change log for details about the latest version of the WCAG-EM Report Tool.
