Hi Katherine--

Also be sure to look into the Web Accessibility Checker from the 
University of Toronto ATRC: http://achecker.ca/checker/index.php

I don't know if you can set it up to automatically screen all the pages 
in a site (I wouldn't recommend that anyway), but it has the depth of 
detail of the other tools you mention and you can set the set the 
screening criteria (A, AA, 508, etc.).
