Are you looking for an enterprise tool?

Deque's Worldspace tool might help or SSB Bart's AMP platform.

Subject: [WebAIM] Tools for automated testing of password-protected sites?

Hi all,

I'm doing some research on automated site accessibility testing.
Specifically, I'm looking for tools or services that work well with password-protected sites. How are these things handled? Do you create dummy accounts on test sites? How do you handle credentials if you need to test live sites? How about if you're using third-party authentication such as OAuth or Shibboleth? Do you have any recommendations for specific tools?
