Online, I prefer Cynthia Says (http://www.contentquality.com/), and
their professional tool AccVerify is what the Commonwealth of Kentucky
uses.

However, I want to stress that an automated tool can only check so
much, and the rest must be verified by a human being.  No
accessibility assessment is complete if it relies solely on an
automated tool.
