on Monday announced the release of LecShare 1.0 for Mac OS X and Windows. It’s a utility that converts presentations created using Microsoft’s PowerPoint software into Web pages that meet Federal disability requirements, and into Microsoft Word documents for easy distribution. It costs US$39 — site licenses and educational discounts are available.
LecShare produces standards-compliant Web pages from PowerPoint presentations that meet Section 508 standards and WAI’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The software creates XHTML and CSS that’s compatible with any Web browser.
