The site is marginally accessible with JAWS as it relies on Flash content 
which if not labeled correctly can be confusing for screen reader users at 
best. After the page loads which took several seconds with high speed DSL 
there was a  question with an edit field stating "If I won millions I 
would..." This definitely is not compliant with W3 or other accessibility
