Hi Peter
I am looking at tools used for automated accessibility testing of websites.
Tool that runs through underlying html and reports the accessibility bugs.
I am interested in tools possessing capability to either automatically fix the bugs or provide recommendations to resolve the issue.
Target audience is designers, developers, testers.
I've used Wave for sometime, but want to know details of best and most utilized commercial tool in the web accessibility testing space.

Please note that many of the tools are open source software and/or
free (from a cost perspective). Their abilities and target audience
vary greatly so to be able to do a comparison you need to be more
specific on what it is that you want to achieve.
