SiteSifter is a highly accessible tool. It's online and available on a subscription basis. Terrific customer support is also worth mentioning.

Subject: [WebAIM] Most accessible WCAG compliance tester for a blind person

Greetings, yea wise ones.

Various tools have come up in various discussions, but I believe I have never seen an actual thread on what is the most accessible WCAG or other accessibility testing tool out there for web sites.
Any recommendation would be most apprecited, be it an online service or a plug in, free or for profit.
I have found several accessibility testing suites to be far from accessible, which is a bit ironic if one thinks about it.
I won't name any names, since it's been a few months since I last tested them.
But I would like to settle on some accessible and easy to use software to quickly evaluate WCAG compliance (of course this is supplemented with my own screen reader testing and commentary).
Thanks and be well
