the notion of 'web acessibility' is also evolving and needs to be
constantly redefined, imho. Technology is too broad a context these days!

In our work (at ISTCS) we focus on the cognitive engineering aspect of the
website, aka 'knowledge accessibility', a slightly more refined and
focussed audit , and use a methodology called KAF (Knowledge Audit
Framework)

Here is a paper about the methodology
http://arxiv.org/abs/1108.1490

The good news, I guess, is that by following/adopting the methodology ,  a
team of non specialists users can carry out the audit without hiring
consultants

Ping me offlist if interested to learn more
