how do you make anything that is inaccessible and I include best practices
for usability in this mix, accessible?

If your client has expressed the need for breadcrumbs, commercial pressure
makes the decision for you, whatever the latest flavour of the month
research project shows.

The question is, if you are going to include breadcrumbs, either because you
think it a good idea, or because you are being paid to do so, how do you
make them accessible?

I think before we discuss how to represent breadcrumbs, we should first
discuss whether they are useful or not. The following two URLs present
results from a user evaluation which are quite interesting:
