Two scenarios:

1. finding automatic: tool finds img elements with empty alt attribute;
    deciding manual: human decides whether image is purely decorative.

2. finding automatic: tool finds table with structural elements (th,
    thead, ...);
    deciding manual: human decides whether table is layout table.

Are both of these manual tests then?
