[Athen] JAWS inspect

It's a great development tool:
the developer doesn't need to fumble with JAWS controls;
they can pull a table of links and alt-text with corresponding HTML elements (including the dreaded carousels); and
they can observe in real-time interaction with ARIA live regions.

The subscription model is expensive if you don't run a large development shop;
it doesn't tell you what other screen readers would read; and
it only reports what JAWS sees (so you'd still need an accessibility checker, and do user testing).
