What are some quick and easy ways to determine if my web site is healthy or poor when it comes to accessibility to readers and other like devices?

I don't have a reader, but need a way to test so that I can improve the site in this area. Are there any coding strategies or methods for testing this?

Here's a site I use for stuff like this sometimes. It's not aimed at accessibility, per se, but it's a good way to see how your site renders on various platforms. browsershots.org/
If you need further assistance with font-sizing, check this out:

There's a free screen reader program for Windows called NVDA. It can be downloaded here: www.nvaccess.org/download/
Macs come with a screen reader program called Voiceover, WebAIM has an article on how to use it: webaim.org/articles/voiceover/
I found it very enlightening as a sighted person to try navigating some websites via a screen reader. Experiencing the frustration first-hand of dealing with a badly coded website really helped drive home the importance of doing this correctly.
