Hello Alice,
>Can anyone recommend a credible accessbility >checker please?

You could try Ramp from Deque Systems (www.deque.com). It has both accessibility checker as well as repair capabilities. Ramp can handle 15 of the 16 Sec 508 checks and most of the   WCAG 1.0 checks. One can check only against specific Sec 508 paragraphs or specific WCAG checkpoints and turn off the others.
It lets the evaluator choose how certain violations are to be identified   based on a set of options.
For some checks it asks questions with specific answer choices based on which it determines if the code presents an accessibility barrier. The repair can be done in two stages: some violations can be autofixed by Ramp and can be  done across a Web page or the site or folder that has been evaluated. It presents a dialog box approach for the rest. Its reporting capabilities are extensive too and meets needs of Managers, developers and reviewers. I can go on but it is best you write to me off list.
