A week ago I finished my assignment on automated checkers for WCAG 2.0 AA. I asked it to check the home page of another blog of mine and it spewed out 223 “potential problems.” (A classmate told me she got more than a thousand.)
I drudgingly went through the list and at the end what did I find?
Three legitimate concerns.
Yes, three out of 223 were all I could find. That’s an accuracy of just slightly over 1%.
I’m not hating the checker or have anything against it per se, but for these checkers to be taken seriously they really have to get better. An accuracy of 1% is not going to work.
