Re: 1.4.3 & 2.4.7: evaluation while blind

Unless reported by automated scans, these are two success criteria I
do not try to evaluate, instead I have a sighted tester handle it.
Keyboard focus is easy to test with a pair of eyes but really hard to
test with non-working ones.
There is an NVDA plugin that tries to indicate whether focus is
visible but I've never used it.

Color contrast can be complex and somewhat subjective if not simple
enough to be detected by a scanner such as Wave or Axe (e.g.
gradients, charts).
