...and just because it has not been mentioned specifically, and is often
overlooked, make sure all video and audio files with spoken words are

Subject: [WebAIM] 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.

Thanks,
Mark
