I don't, but the subject came up on another listserv a while back. I'm
pretty sure the results would be the same. At least with the standard
QA automation tools you can verify results by taking a snapshot of a
textbox and then comparing the bitmap to a previous bitmap. It's ugly
and error-prone, but it's sometimes the only workaround. Screen
readers wouldn't have this option since they need to grab actual text.
