This, of course, is entirely true, but a bit of an understatement. Even if all
such tools were in place, the significant problem still remains that the
majority of the web page designers, who still only care about making those
pages look impressive to sighted people, need to be gently and politely
convinced that they should expend all kinds of effort not only to use the new
facilities, but also to learn how best to use them so that a blind person would
actually benefit from them.
