The first step in designing an accessible website - it is ALWAYS the
responsibility of the developer. As developers, there is no way to
determine what your audience will use to browse the site, particularly
if the content is of a broad nature that appeals to large groups. It
is the developer's job to minimize the impact of such issues.
