I use Inspect and AccEvent Watcher for Flash, Silverlight, Windows, and ARIA implementations.  I generally use the Java Monkey and Ferret for Java.

We also have a few toolbars that can be accessed via an evaluation AMP account<https://amp.ssbbartgroup.com/register/>.  These toolbars also include contrast checkers as well as preview modes to show headings, image alt text, etc.

·         AMP Toolbar for Firefox

·         AMP toolbar for IE

A simple contrast checker can be found at https://www.ssbbartgroup.com/reference/index.php/Contrast_Checker

I also posted a blog article on creating accessibility favlets<https://www.ssbbartgroup.com/blog/2014/02/03/how-to-create-a-favlet-for-accessibility-testing/> and included some favlets our on labs site<https://labs.ssbbartgroup.com/index.php/Category:Favlet>.

An informal question, what accessibility tools do people here trust
most these days?

I’m reviewing the accessibility section of UITest.com<http://UITest.com> and am not sure
it’s up-to-date.

(Direct feedback okay if you happen to run any tools you like to see
listed there, or if you have any general feedback.)
