ANDI Features
code based testing
Favelet (not a download - works behind firewalls)
Works in multiple browsers (Even Safari!)
Easy to use - great for developers
Open Source - FREE
Accessible and Section 508 Conformant user interface

The primary function of the tool is to identify the accessible name and description specification. ANDI also provides a number of other functions and features, such as contrast, document structure, reading order, and other types of evaluation, all specifically designed to facilitate manual, code-based inspection of web pages.

In addition to combining and presenting (with minor exception) all of its features in a single, user-friendly favelet tool, ANDI provides all of its features and outputs in an entirely accessible and Section 508-conformant user interface.
