Web Accessibility Toolbar 2.0 Chinese language version

Posted on Thursday, 20 March 2008 by Steve Faulkner

I am pleased to announce the release of the Traditional Chinese language version of the WAT 2.0 (including a Traditional Chinese version of the Color Contrast Analyser 2.0) The software translations were provided by Jedi. He is still working on the documentation, which will be available shortly.

I don’t have any knowledge of the awareness or interest of web accessibility in China and Taiwan, but hopefully access to free tools such the WAT and Color Contrast Analyser will help. Thanks to Jedi for his hard work.
