The only bulk testing tool I’ve found for PDF is CommonLook Clarity (http://commonlook.com/accessibility-software/commonlook-clarity/) As with any automated tool, it can only check certain things; some tests require human judgment.

I have not found a bulk tool for Microsoft Office document formats. If anybody has, please let me know!

Is there such a thing?

If we wanted to auto-assess the accessibility, for example, of all pdf’s that have been uploaded to our LMS (Blackboard), is anyone aware of a product that would perform such a function?
