Implementing Accessibility in the Enterprise

  • Chapter


In order for an enterprise to successfully implement an accessibility solution, the enter- prise needs to be some sort of organization that will handle and support accessibility issues and enforcement. We’ll refer to this as an accessibility organization. The details of how this accessibility organization works will differ depending on the type of organization. Certainly, there will be differences in the way it is implemented in nonprofit organizations, governmental entities, for-profit businesses, and educational institutions. However, there will also be important similarities.
