Hi Donna, yes, SSB BART Group is a leading organization that guides other organizations in making their digital content accessible to people with disabilities. I work for SSB and I'd be happy to discuss any specific questions you may have -- my email is in the signature below this message. In regards to the email you mentioned -- SSB recently partnered with IBM® to create a mobile accessibility checker to assist developers in finding and correcting accessibility issues for native iOS and Android apps. Our mobile solution can also test pages from Cordova (e.g. Worklight and PhonGap) hybrid apps but it does need to be initiated from within the development environment such as xCode (iOS) or Eclipse (Android). Once initiated the testing can occur on a physical device or within a mobile simulator.

Best Regards,

The inability to pronounce a chemical ingredient is not an argument against it.
