Contacting either RNIB or the W3C Office in the UK might be a good way to  
find out more. (Or not - confidentiality is something that a lot of places  
like). There were certainly results where the response was to actually  
improve the accessibility of the website. And others, such as the current  
case, where someone said they would do something but the implementation  
was really ust a sorry joke.
