in my own church and their website the only thing not accessible (after 
some training)was the monthly newsletter, which drove me nuts because the 
newsletter was typed up on a word processing software (such as Word) and 
then converted to pdf then scanned onto the website.  finally convinced 
them to just upload the document from the wordprocessessing output.

they finally got it.

but this is so common it is hard to understand why folks want to work so 
much harder.
