I have seen this product, and they have got a very good thing on their
hands. It is really the next step in wed accessibility evaluation, and  they
seem to have a very good grasp of the issues.

Hope this helps.

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?
