Thought I share this.

I was doing a research on Mobile version of eCommerce sites and stumbled on m.gap.com, which has an "We are commited to making our Website accessible to customers who use screen readers and other assistive technologies." statement.
Yet both mobile and desktop versions couldn't passed the automated accessibility test.

Make me wonder if the statement is kool-aid of the prevention from lawsuit by Accessibility watchdogs. Look! We are committed to accessibility, but we haven't started doing anything about it yet and we won't be doing it unless a blind organization suits us like it did to targets.com.
