Susan, it may not be an ideal solution, but we test in a couple of ways.

We use the built-in Adobe Acrobat Pro checker as our first step. Version
10 of Acrobat Pro has a Section 508 check option. Version 11 is, I believe,
a bit stricter.
We do a manual check of the tags and reading order.
We test with JAWS and NVDA screen readers
and we also use the PAC PDF
checker.<http://www.access-for-all.ch/en/pdf-lab/pdf-accessibility-checker-pac/download-pac.html>;

After running all of those tests, we still cross our fingers.
Hope that helps some.
