I wasn't aware of it but upon looking it up saw that they have a good
explanation of it on the video at their site


I don't do web site accessibility checks but heard that many tried just
downloading the JAWS demo in an attempt to imagine the barriers a user
would face if using a screenreader. Problem was, too many people don't
have the depth of knowledge of JAWS and the cognitive overhead that takes
to learn the various settings and features.

Looks like this attempts to do the hard work for you, leaving out all the
other rich features of JAWS.

I'll be interested in hearing what others have to share.
