your thoughts on the WCAG test procedures

Hi all.

First I want to acknowledge and thank you all for the extremely helpful
discussions and information you are providing in this group.

I'd like to get your thoughts on the test procedures for the WCAG
success criteria. Going through WCAG, I find that most success criteria
have multiple sufficient techniques and failures, each one having its
own test procedures.   

*    Sufficient Technique for SC 1.3.1 > Situation A > ARIA11 > Test
procedure: https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/Techniques/aria/ARIA11.html#tests
*    Failure for SC 1.3.1 > F2 > Test procedure

I see how this can result to a very comprehensive accessibility test,
however, my gut feel is that it would take a very long time to test a
page if we go through each test procedure.

Please can you share your thoughts - is there another way of looking at
it? I'm open to other perspectives. Also, your techniques in using the
test procedures would be very useful.

Thank you for reading my message and I look forward to hearing from you.
