Just a reminder for developers who *are* interested in a more formal
approach: there's a "test your app for accessibility" how-to at  

As with usability testing, though, a checklist like that is no
substitute for hands-on testing with real users, so your more pragmatic
approach might well turn out to be a useful source of bug reports and
enhancement requests.
