web accessibility

Our college is trying to get all the distance learning pages accessibile
according to BOBBY and we have run up against a snag... We only use Front
Page as our authoring tool and many of the faculty use the themes feature.
The bullets that the themes feature puts on the pages are marked by BOBBY as
inaccessible but there is NO WAY to get to the coding to either alt tag them
or change them. We also have the same problem with faculty using little
pictures as bullets. It messes up all of the formatting when we try to
change these bullets.
The screen reader just ignores them but BOBBY doesn't... Can we legally put
the BOBBY logo on these pages if the screen reader doesn't have a problem
with them? Or does anyone have a work around on this?
Thanks for any help.
