I agree that A-prompt is good -- and I strongly second the comment
about a "knowledgeable human being." For all the good that tools
can do, they only work if the person running them knows what she's
How do you get to know what you're doing? Easiest way, I think, is
to take one of the courses available -- such as EASI's, WebAIM's, or
HWG/IWA's. Consider this a plug for me, Norm, and Paul. ;) Hey, I
am not _completely_ self-serving here.
PS: Has anyone taken the WOW accessibility course?
