Ummm.........

This attitude is prevalent and is becoming a huge barrier to those of us
who want to encourage accessible design.  What good is the work of
developing guidelines if, ultimately, the people you're dependent upon to
put them into practice think they're worthless?

The biggest problem here is the waters are made muddy by the corporate
internet who give out great sound bites yet ignore even the diluted
solutions offered. Erm, any one heard what's happening with AOL and the NFB?
The 12 months are up.

We have in a few cases on this list, conflicts of interest, the corporate
subscription list to the WAI reads in some cases as a who's who to
inaccessible websites. I have questioned this privately before, and been
given a reasonable answer. But define reasonable?

I now ask publicly " If the WAI-IG credibility is an issue here, it may
certainly be hampered by this list naming and shaming. How hampered is it
when some contributors are funded by the corporate world, the very people
ignoring those recommendations?
