This looks like a useful document for authors.

I was at first sight confused by the red big "NO", which actually means:
you're fine, you don't have to do anything, browsers & AT already take care
of it. So, from a gut reaction point of view, this "NO" should be green and
not red, since red signifies I should pay attention.

Similarly, the big green "YES" actually means: pay attention and introduce
these! Might be worth changing the color scheme.
