Hello,

On the forum page of Accessify Forum.com I found a link to a site with
an accessibility tool
called "Ask Alice"
http://askalice.ssbtechnologies.com:8080/ssb/aa/anon/index.jsp
that can test pages for free on accessibility.

After registering I got a report that said it tested 100 pages
and found average number of one violation per page.

Most prevalent violations

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Violation Scripts: NOSCRIPT required
Violation Source WCAG Priority 1 : Checkpoint 1.1 [priority 1] (this a
link to the WCAG 1.1 checkpoint)

Section 508 : Section 1194.22 - Paragraph A (it is also a link)
Violation Count 101

When you look the code of the page
http://www.ssbtechnologies.com/accessibility/definition.php about
accessibility you will find no doctype, but much javascript, font tags
and of course the page does not validate.

I found this in their homepage:
SSB's customers Wells Fargo, HP and SSA are the first in their
industries to be certified by the National Federation of the Blind.
(More)

Among the customers of SSB technologies are many federal departments,
but visiting one of those pages is also seeing much the same of the code
of the accessibility page.

Greetings
