I don't know about auto validators, but I was working on the Readium project
to make the online reader accessible for Bookshare.org last summer. When I
last tested it in October, the Benetech fork of the project was screen
reader and keyboard accessible.

and

If you are interested in online reader integration, you may wish to contact
Gerardo Capiel at <EMAIL REMOVED> ,who may be able to direct you to the
right eBook source for this.
