The World Wide Web plays an important role in our society—enabling broader access to information and services than was previously available. However, Website usability and accessibility are still a problem. Numerous, automated, evaluation and transformation tools are available to help Web developers build better sites for users with diverse needs. A survey of these automated tools is presented in the context of the user abilities they support. Furthermore, the efficacy of a subset of these tools based on empirical studies is discussed, along with ways to improve existing tools and future research areas.
