I’d also suggest that since the rate of change is so fast in this area, that organizations need to also invest in keeping these staff informed. Going to conferences like http://www.accessconf.ca will really expand peoples understandings & give them additional resources to work from.
I also think that the price of accessibility can be brought down by participating in open source projects like Drupal & WordPress and being vocal about accessibility issues. Simply raising awareness to developers about best practices – like those identified in http://hanshillen.github.com/aegisdemo/ – can go a long way to seeing that they are adopted.]]>
