IBM today announced that it is contributing the Accessibility Tools Framework (ACTF) to the Eclipse Foundation.
ACTF is a collection of tools and building blocks developed by IBM. By using the framework, developers can create accessibility tools and applications easily and cost effectively as they no longer need to spend time creating a tool or an application from scratch. With the reusable accessibility technology components of ACTF, and the standardized design and application programming interfaces the framework offers, developers can quickly and easily build various accessibility tools, such as an accessibility validation tool or a usability visualization tool.
"We are excited to have IBM's contribution and leadership to the Eclipse ACTF project. This is another great example of organizations driving forward technical innovation through an open source project at Eclipse..." says to Mike Milinkovich, executive director of Eclipse Foundation.
