Re: A question on regulations - NAM

When I went through the Trusted Tester certification program that you
mention, the short and sweet answer they have us on the first day is
that no automated tool will make a website accessible.  Tools help and
Trusted Testers are taught to use a bunch of them, but doing so is not a
legal defense by itself.

When a client asks such questions, I respond with a question of my own,
"How do you see a tool providing an ALT description for an image, and
that is a simple example?"
