Research | Projects | Page Detailer Page Detailer provides instrumentation and visualization of the performance of web page downloads, showing decomposition of the web page into its component parts (e.g., HTML, GIFs, Applets) and the activities involved in retrieving them. By understanding the retrieval schedule for Web page components, page designers can dramatically improve performance by reorganizing content. By decomposing response time, site architects can understand how to tune their servers and/or configure their applications to provide optimum performance. Page Detailer relies heavily on IBM Research's patented Web Detailer (aka ETE: End-to-End performance monitoring, US#06108700) technology developed in Hawthorne to provide instrumentation of browsers and other HTTP-based applications and to correlate discrete events into a hierarchy of timelines. Page Detailer has been used extensively in customer engagements and is currently available for purchase as part of the WebSphereTM Studio v3.5.

Using a Screen-Reader on the Web The California community colleges Distance Education Access Guidelines for Students with Disabilities require that all web based instructional resources be WAI Priority 1 compliant. A large number of Priority 1 guidelines address access considerations for persons who are blind. Recently, web accessibility standards were implemented through the Section 508 Standards for Electronic and Information Technology. Additions to JAWS version 4.5 greatly improve the capacity of this screen reader navigate more complex web pages. These example pages are meant to be explored using Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or 6.0 and JAWS version 4.0 or later. We will be providing a version for the Window-Eyes Screen Reader shortly. Important: All JAWS reading commands use the Num Pad keys.
