I recently found some good website accessibility testing tools:
Fangs Screen Reader Emulator a Mozilla Add-on: Fangs renders a text version of a web page similar to how a screen reader would read it. The ambition is to help developers understand how an assistive device would present a website and thereby increase chances of finding accessibility issues early.
Standford University Web Accessibility Checker: The Stanford Online Accessibility Program’s Web Accessibility Checker is a programmatic tool that can analyze individual web pages and test for various access barriers that may be present.

What are the biggest mistakes companies make when building their sites and apps?
1. Making it difficult to touch and manipulate. As Nielsen explains, your eyes are more agile than your fingers. You see that link among but your fingers can’t select it, so Nielsen recommends using larger touch
