Maybe we could say:

  Some of the web-content accessibility checkpoints cannot be checked     
  successfully by software algorithms alone.  [...]

Rationale for change: software algorithms to check these check points don't
fail to be objective, but they do fail to check the right thing.  Current
wording uses 'may' where 'can' should be used.  Set stage for next sentence
more simply.
