glad you want to make things accessible, but so far I don't know of
any comprehensive "testing" software or site.  basically it is still
checking by hand each site.

and one of the biggest problems is checking with only one set of
software (like Windows and Jaws)  to be compliant the site has to be
software neutral.

good luck
