Accessibar – Make the Web Usable

AccessibarAt no fault of the user, the designer doesn’t always think of usability when designing a web site. Sometimes fonts can be to small, web pages can be the wrong color – and text can be seven different shades of wonky. The Accessibar extension for Firefox looks to change all of that for you.

This toolbar provides the following features:

+ Web page fonts, links and background colors can be changed from a selection of 70 colors on current session

+ Icons with configurable shortcut keys to increase and decrease Font size

+ Line spacing can be increased or decreased to five different spacing settings incrementally

+ All images (including Flash) displayed on a web page can be selected as being hidden or shown

As you can see for such a tiny footprint in your Firefox’s browsing space, Accessibar does a lot of work. Does this toolbar do the job for you?
