HERNDON, Va., May 27, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Deque Systems today is announcing the newest release of Amaze, the only patent pending product that enables developers to fix web accessibility defects ten times faster1. After two years of use, extensive collaboration with the development community, and thorough testing, version 3.0 is now widely available.

"Every day, Amaze enables about 400,000 users with disabilities access websites belonging to major corporations, and that number is growing by leaps and bounds with every project our customers complete." said Deque CEO Preety Kumar in announcing the release.

The Amaze product integrates the following resources:

    --  Amaze Library: performs the common tasks required for accessibility in
        library functions that have been tested on all the major operating
        systems, browsers and assistive technologies
    --  Developer Tools: allows front-end developers to implement and test code
        working inside the browser with a much more efficient workflow than
        without the Amaze tools
    --  Amaze Server: lets developers fix 3rd-party applications or legacy
        applications where a rebuild is impractical as well as serves as a
        mechanism for sharing accessibility fixes with other team members

The complexity of developing for multiple browsers, numerous assistive technologies, in addition to mobile devices like smartphones and tablets means that the challenges and costs of accessibility are growing. In addition, evolving standards and compliance requirements make an easy-to-use product like Amaze an essential tool for developers who need to build and maintain accessible web and mobile sites.
