I can help walk you through using AXe and FireEyes from Deque with a
screen reader, as well as how to use Firebug effectively with a screen
reader.
In fact we are working on an online resource where we plan to collect

posted to this list soon, once we have some CSUN feedback and have
some basics going.
Cheers
