Exploding the myth of automated accessibility checking

National treasure Gez Lemon wrote a test page with known validation 
and WCAG errors and ran it through various automated checking tools, 
none of which caught more than a few of the errors, if that.


It's quite a devastating analysis and calls into question the WCAG 
Working Group's interest in making as many guidelines as possible 

He'll have a follow-up next week.
