Web Accessibility Toolbar 2.0 Chinese Language version
I am pleased to announce the release of the Traditional Chinese language version of the WAT
2.0 (including a Traditional Chinese version of the Color Contrast Analyser 2.0) The software translations were provided by Jedi
. He is still working on the documentation, which will be available shortly. I don't have any knowledge of the awareness or interest of web accessibility in China and Taiwan, but hopefully access to free tools such the WAT

for his hard work.
