Not that I know of. This is one reason that accessibility testing also requires someone with good visual acuity. There is no substitution for an eyeball and human cognition for validating some of the requirements.

Subject: [WebAIM] Identifying if focus is visible


I was wondering if there was any means for a screen reader user to be able to check to see if the keyboard focus inn the port view was visible and the colour contrast without referring to the code?

If the code is the only method, I assume javascript can modify the CSS attribute?
