Earlier this year, IBM announced their first set of enterprise accessibility tools on IBM Bluemix: Digital Content Checker and Automated Accessibility Tester. The new services provide an easy and affordable way to help enterprises produce accessible content and applications, and integrate accessibility directly into the programming code.
