Christina,

The Illinois Functional Accessibility Evaluator is free to use tool to evaluate multiple web pages.

Version 1.1 released last month will analyze dynamically generated HTML content from inline scripting and onload events.

There are currently more than 2000 registered users and FAE has analyzed over a million web pages for accessibility features in the past year.

I would be interested in how useful you find the tools.

HiSoft
was used a few years ago to audit the govt agency sites here in NZ. I found the HiSoft report generally meaningless but it might have improved since then.

We have a lot of pdf files on our site. And nearly all are converted to HTML equivalents, the tool picked up that pdf files existed and gave us a fail and did not continue.

I was
quite disappointed in the result but it may have been due to poor deployment.
