Re: The Commercialization of Web Accessibility

Another good side effect that I've noticed... and one not directly to do
with accessibility so feel free to kill the thread.

I've found that once an organisation has started taking accessibility issues
seriously, they suddenly start taking more general issues of usability and
information management more seriously too.

After dealing with the problems that one section of their audience is having
they suddenly realise that it might be a good idea to do this for everybody!

Accessibility seems to provide a neat entry-point into a more user-centric
mindset. Quite why I'm not sure.

A good thing, but slightly weird.
