With lawsuits and human-rights complaints proliferating, and with simple awareness of accessibility percolating through the industry, soon it will be hard to find a web shop that won't be producing accessible sites, whether it presently has the experience and know-how or not.

About the Author
Toronto journalist and accessibility consultant Joe Clark's 20-year obsession with accessibility dates back to a fateful winter night in the mid-'70s when he stumbled across a captioned TV show. Clark bolsters his portfolio of nearly 400 published articles with a strong background in graphic design and over ten years of experience online.
He writes, programs, and designs web sites from scratch. Dubbed "the king of closed captions" by the Atlantic Monthly, Clark also consults with clients to improve the quality and quantity of accessible sites, video, cinema, and television.
