I hope not:
I think that what should be done is the guidelines should be followed then if anybody hits your site with accessibility tools they should be able to use an interact with it

Hello Everyone! I had a question come in today from a student. I'm hoping this group might be able to provide some insight...

"I understand accessibility needs to be integrated into every aspect of your website. I was wondering if there is any way to detect whether a user is using support for their disability and then adjust your website to support them even more? Kind of similar to the way Responsive Web Design detects browser window size then adjusts accordingly?"

Thank you!
