In Ye Olden Days there was a free "Bobby Standard" tester, but I
always used my own Bob Standard, i.e. running it past Bob, my bike
mechanic, who is webmaster for Reading Talking Newspaper and is
completely blind, he uses a screen reader.

A simple test is to view the page in lynx. Igf it still makes sense,
you should be OK as far as screen readers go, especially if your code
passes an [X]HTML 4.0 strict validator and has a correct Doctype. This
will also help ordinary browsers witht he exception of IE6 and lower.
Tpyos always crop up at the worst possible moment! :~(
Which rather makes the test useless considering that IE6 is still the
most used (I won't say popular...) browser. Regarding accessibility,
another thing to consider is colour vision problems - probably more
important in some ways than screen readers - there is a plug-in for
Photoshop, Paintshop, Gimp etc, that will render a screen-shot into
pre-defined images of how the page will be seen by those with colour
vision problems - trouble is, I can't remember it's name!
Where did I quote my domain?
And anyway, http://oomodeltrains.hmmetro.not is a great site!!!! :)
And I'm sorry if I offended you Jerry, please feel free to post what
you think I should have said in reply to my memory problems?
