100,000 reasons to design for accessibility

Bruce Lawson tells a sobering story:

So I get a gig writing an accessibility report for a big organisation that completely relaunched its website last year. They wanted an external opinion, but were completely confident that everything’s fine, as they didn’t use any old supplier; they used the same big company that implemented all their payroll systems, their CRM suite etc. Big guys. Big company. Got to be pros, right?

Can you guess what happened? Of course, the site didn’t even meet WCAG priority one (”A Web content developer must satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it impossible to access information in the document”).
