Original Comment:

Hard to test accessbility? :D

Forget about the testing of accessbility through a program. It will
never happen.

Proposed Change:

I propose a "check box".

Then it will give the webdesigners possbility to "check" their way
into accessbility. Of course we will have to "trust" designers not to
"cheat". But i guess if the webdesigners want a "accessbility tag",
they wouldnt cheat.

i myself would have loved a interactiv checklist for when i started to
look into accessbility.

Response from Working Group:

The current language allows for testing, some may be done by machine
and some may need human testing, and some need a combination of both.
We have also provided a Quick Reference which can be used in checklist
fashion.  Future tools may be built from the Quick Reference that
include checklist features, but this is not something the working
group can devote resources to until the guidelines and techniques are
more complete.
