Testing accessibility of web pages or sites for people with disab

Here's a way to get your Web Pages or entire site analyzed to see
if vision-impaired users can use it. Also seems to indicate browser
incompatibility errors.
Good idea. Here's the link and an excerpt:

"Bobby is a Web-based tool that analyzes Web pages for their accessibility
to people with disabilities. CAST offers Bobby as a free public service
in order to further its mission to expand opportunities for people with
disabilities through the innovative uses of computer technology.

Enter the URL of the page that you want Bobby to examine and click Submit.
Bobby will display a report indicating any accessibility and browser
compatibility errors found on the page. This dialog will only test
one page at a time. If you wish to test an entire site as a batch,
use the downloadable version of Bobby. Once all the pages of your site
receive a Bobby Approved rating, you are entitled to display a Bobby
Approved icon. "
