ATAG Checkpoint 4.1: Check for and inform the author of accessibility problems. [Relative Priority]

Note: Accessibility problems should be detected automatically where possible. Where this is not possible, the tool may need to prompt the author to make decisions or to manually check for certain types of problems. @@How exactly should we handle the AERT?@@.


ATAG Checkpoint 4.2: Assist authors in correcting accessibility problems. [Relative Priority]


ATAG Checkpoint 4.3: Allow the author to preserve markup not recognized by the tool. [Priority 2]

Note: The author may have included or imported markup that enhances accessibility but is not recognized by the tool.


ATAG Checkpoint 4.4: Provide the author with a summary of the document's accessibility status. [Priority 3]


ATAG Checkpoint 4.5: Allow the author to transform presentation markup that is misused to convey structure into structural markup, and to transform presentation markup used for style into style sheets. [Priority 3]
