That's a great summary of things. The author writes, "A site such as
Target's would likely cost anywhere from $800,000 to $2 million to make
accessible." Any idea where these numbers come from? That price tag sure
seems a bit high to me, at least if we're talking about some moderate level
of accessibility.
