Hello All,
I wanted to thank you for all your help on my previous questions.  Your 
help has been invaluable.

A few people made a comment regarding "blind compliance" to a standard.  I 
agree with those who pointed out that the goal is to make the site 
accessible to our users and use the guidelines as..... well, guidelines, 
but I think WCAG is a good starting point. 

What we would like to do is create a retail website that is accessible to 
as many people as possible.  This means we will need to test it with the 
equipment people might use (though not all disabled people would need 
equipment to use the site).  Would you have any recommendations on what is 
the most popular or the most frequently used equipment for web use?  I see 
that Microsoft has a screen reader, there is also JAWS, I also saw a 
braille reader.  Is there something that a large portion of disabled 
people use to navigate the web?  We would like to purchase something that 
would let us experience our website the way others might.

Thank you again,
Anna Yevsiyevich
Web Usability Analyst
