Using Lynx

Okay so you've read the W3C WAI specifications and used Total Validator to check all your pages. But maybe once all the GUI elements of your page have been stripped out the content may not make much sense. So what will your pages really look like to someone using a screen reader?

Well I find that the best way to check is to use a text based browser, and the text based browser of choice is Lynx. This has been going as long as the Web. But getting hold of Lynx and installing it is not as easy as you may think. It may be easier to use the screenshot feature in Total Validator and select Lynx from the menu to see what your pages look like.
