WCAG-EM Report tool is an assistant that takes the user through the process of evaluating the accessibility of a website, using the WCAG-EM Evaluation Methodology. The Report Tool runs entirely on the client and so it can be used offline and in any server configuration available to you.
The Report Tool does not save files to a server or in local storage. Rather, load and save functions are available for storing an evaluation to your local file system.
The official released version of the Report Tool can be found at http://www.w3.org/WAI/eval/report-tool/. An example of the latest (unapproved by EO) version is available at http://w3c.github.io/wcag-em-report-tool/dist/.
See Change log for details about the latest version of the WCAG-EM Report Tool.
