    ARLINGTON, Va., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Crunchy Technologies, an e-business and e-government solutions provider, today
 announced the immediate availability of PageScreamer(TM) 2.0, a leading-edge
 tool that reduces the amount of time required to analyze Section 508
 compliance violations and correct non-compliant Web site content.
     PageScreamer dramatically reduces the time required to update Web pages
 for compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998.
 This Federal Act mandates that all Federal government Web sites and intranet
 sites be accessible to people with disabilities by June 21, 2001.
     PageScreamer enables a user with minimal technical background to quickly
 scroll through the Web server root directory, identifying non-compliant
 images, objects and applets.  The user can view non-compliant items and make
 immediate edits to the HTML or Java script or populate edits to multiple
 images from a control directory.
     Crunchy Technologies, who last month received a Government Computer News
 FOSE "Best New Technology Award" for its Custom e-Grants Management Solution,
 also provides professional services to assist organizations with compliance
 conversion or mirror-site creation.
     "As a law firm representing Americans With Disabilities Act cases, it's
 important for the information on our Web site to be universally accessible,"
 said Eric Siegel, founding partner of Henrichsen Siegel (www.hslawyers.com), a
 Washington DC-based law firm specializing in employment law.  "Crunchy
 Technologies completed the update in two days.  The actual conversion using
 PageScreamer took only 35 minutes.  Going forward, our Webmaster can use
 PageScreamer to ensure continued compliance as we update and add new content
 and pages to our site."
     "Crunchy's experience of converting our own site (www.crunchy.com) to
 comply with Section 508 standards led us to the development of PageScreamer,"
 said Lou Hutchinson, CEO of Crunchy Technologies.  "We're providing a fast,
 aggressively-priced tool that will make it much easier for government agencies
 to meet their June 21st deadline."
      PageScreamer 2.0 commercial list pricing begins at $2,495 per seat for
 commercial users.  Crunchy offers discounted pricing for volume purchases and
 site licenses and the product is available on the GSA schedule.
