Hi Everett,

The tests we are talking about automating are unit tests. There is  
certainly an amount of accessibility testing that can be done on a  
unit test level and in fact we do write these. One example of possible  
accessibility unit tests are tests that ensure that the correct ARIA  
roles or states are applied to components at appropriate times.

We can always use help fleshing out the unit test suites. I'm not sure  
what the best way to get involved in this effort is - perhaps someone  
else can pipe up?
