I am also having problems using Macromedia's Dreamweaver 4 Accessibility
add on.  I downloaded it and tried to evaluate the page that I was creating
to see if it was compliant and it did not list any errors even when I
purposely make the font and background the same color.  Does anyone know
how to make the Dreamweaver Accessibility features work?

I was wondering if anyone else was confused about the new "Accessibility
Solutions Kit."  I already have Ultradev 4, so I can't understand why they
want me to buy it again just to get this kit.

I couldn't find any separate version on the Macromedia web site.  I did
find
this list of the contents:
    http://www.macromedia.com/resources/special/solutions_kit/samples.html

Then I tried this:  I re-registered my copy on the Macromedia web site.
After completing the online forms, it gave me a link to this page:
    http://www.get-info.cc/macromedia/solutions/

So, I filled it out and now will wait 4-6 weeks to see if I ever get the
CD...
