Testing for accessibility compliance

I'm working for a large company that is beginning to go down the road to making there website accessible. I'm starting to wonder about testing, as I'm not a tester. Do larger companies testing their websites for accessibility have a group of testers reviewing their pages with screen readers (one or more)? Or do they just validate that the code created is to spec? What tools are other companies using to test their websites for accessibility? Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
