Could browsers fix more accessibility problems automatically?

Accessibility best practices and standards are great, but realistically, they don't reach everybody. Part of the web is still inaccessible to people with disabilities. What if browsers could give users the power to override the web, and fix accessibility errors in web content whenever they can? In this talk, I will discuss accessibility features in today's browsers and share what else could be done.
