Re: web accessibility retrofitting service

Actually, I'm scoping out the development of an accessibility production
service for our campus, and was wondering whether anyone has done that
somewhere else. Our faculty are generally not experienced web
developers, and there is interest in providing a service that will work
with their online course materials and either redesign or retrofit them
to be accessible. The majority of our public sites are accessible, but
when it comes to course pages, there is some work that needs to be done.
By whom, is the question.

Thanks,
Lisa
