Hi Ginger,
I have a couple of suggestions. One is to check out this UPA article, which
describes the level of accessibility provided by two popular survey tools as
of 2007:
http://www.upassoc.org/upa_publications/upa_voice/volumes/2007/april/access.html

I think I heard that one of the 2 tools mentioned improved their
accessibility after the article was published, so you might also contact the
tool vendors directly or the authors. I could find out how to contact the
authors if you would like that info.

The other suggestion is to contact the people at WebAIM and ask which tool
they used in their recent survey of screen reader users:
