Managing Accessibility Compliance in the Enterprise

When addressing accessibility compliance, many organizations seem to begin their approach from the wrong direction – that is, when a system has already been designed, developed, and released to the user. Such an approach is often unsuccessful and results in decreased accessibility compliance for the whole organization. Addressing accessibility compliance successfully requires the organization to fully manage their compliance efforts at all stages within their project lifecycle for all projects.
