Mike,

I am get trashed for saying this, but I think the easiest way of getting a
quick overview is to use a text-based browser like Lynx. This will give you
a baseline overview of the understandability of a page and the major areas
that need work.

Once this is done, you can go  on and use an audio browser like IBM's
Homepage Reader.

Hope this helps.

Can anyone share a methodology for testing and analyzing existing sites for
accessibility? I'm curious as to which specific steps you feel are
essential and where the majority of your focus lies.
Thanks,
