Though noting that this is a slightly different topic (the failings of
those accessibility overlays / toolbars) than the one touched on here
(the failings of automated tools not being enough to make an actual
determination about what is and isn't accessible, and their often very
opinionated/flawed test criteria that are, at best, a weird
interpretation of the actual far more nuanced WCAG requirements...for
instance, NOT following an ARIA pattern in terms of its roles and
keyboard interactions is NOT necessarily a WCAG failure in all situations).
