Fangs: The Screen Reader Emulator Plugin for Mozilla

via EdTechPost

so many people simply assume that if it conforms to W3C WCAG or Section 508 guidelines, that's enough. It's not, and it's a case where 'seeing' (actually 'hearing') is believing. 'Fangs' allows you to read web pages more like how the users of an assistive reader will hear them.

Totally agree. Accessbility is much much more than just conforming to a standard. A tool like Fangs will help developers who are not visually impair to understand the problems of their screen layout. I look forward to installing this plug-in and I think it is a good idea to promote it.
