I got the mail below about a company producing software to automatically
make many fixes to web sites for accessibility.  Does anyone know anything
about the product?

>From EASI's web site, I understand that you are teaching a course in web
>site accessibility for people in higher education during the month of
>October.  I write because my company, SSB Technologies, has developed
>software tools that diagnose and retrofit web sites to make them accessible
>to disabilities.  These tools might be helpful as teaching aids in your
>class as well as when your students need to make their own sites accessible.
>The tools test for over 85 violations of the Web Content Accessibility
>Guidelines and offer over 65 automated "fixes" to make the site more
>accessible.  We have found that the tools reduce the time that it takes to
>make web sites and intranets accessible by 75% compared to doing it
>manually.  Our web site, www.ssbtechnologies.com, has more information about
>the software and allows you to download a demo version of the tools.  If you
>are interested, I hope that we can connect in the next week to determine how
>we might be able to help you in your class or in your consulting practice.
>I hope that all is well on your end.
