Scan websites for accessibility issues

Koa11y is a desktop app which scans any specific web page for accessibility issues.

The program looks for a wide range of problems: missing image Alt attributes, missing titles, colour contrast issues, lengthy ALTs, poorly designed forms, and anything else that doesn't play nicely with accessibility software and APIs.

Koa11y is aimed at professionals, not the casual user. The reports are comprehensive and detailed, organising any issues into three categories: Errors (fix now), Warnings (take a look), and Notices (suggestions). Take a look at a sample report here.

While there's a lot of web analysis going on here, the program itself is very simple. At a minimum, you might just enter a URL, specify an output folder and click Run. An HTML report file is produced within seconds.

If HTML doesn't suit your needs, the program can save reports in CSV, JSON, XML and Markdown.

Experts can also validate the page using several standards. WCAG2AA is the default; WCAG2A is a little more lenient, WCAG2AAA a little more strict; and Section 508 is a separate US government standard.


Koa11y can detect and highlight a stack of web accessibility issues, but the program won't be for everyone. The reports are technical, there's no flexibility in the analysis (check this rule, ignore that one), and there's no option to scan an entire site-- it's the specified URL only.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
