Do you surf the web?

As a user ATbar is free, can change the look and feel of webpages, have text read aloud and spell check forms.

Are you designing websites?

As a developer ATbar is free and easy to add to webpages, offers user preference options and comes free with the added benefit of advice on accessibility if required.

Give your website added value and work within Equality Act 2010 and BS8878 guidelines.

ATbar has been created as an open-source, cross-browser toolbar to help students customise the way they view and interact with web pages to help their study skills.

The concept behind ATbar is simple: One toolbar to provide all of the functionality you would usually get in many different products, and which will run in any desktop web browser.

There are two versions of ATbar available:

If you are a user, you have a choice of either installing the Lite bookmarklet version that can be accessed within your browser, or a full install which will load automatically for every page. If you manage a website, you are able to embed ATbar Lite into a link on your website, which will allow your visitors to utilise ATbar, without installation.
