In which case, like I say, a redesign would usually be best. And there are
dozens of excellent companies out there, to do just that.

If there are clear reasons for this being impractical, a retrofit is going
to have many problems to overcome. Adding a self voiceing system and/or
templated patch (a little like T.V Raman's AxsJax) is a way to work around
these issues. This is something I'd be more than happy to investigate for
you, and is something we've done before.

I'd list other design companies for a redesign, but there are so many and
I'd hate to leave anyone out.

Actually, I'm scoping out the development of an accessibility production
service for our campus, and was wondering whether anyone has done that
somewhere else. Our faculty are generally not experienced web
developers, and there is interest in providing a service that will work
with their online course materials and either redesign or retrofit them
to be accessible. The majority of our public sites are accessible, but
when it comes to course pages, there is some work that needs to be done.
By whom, is the question.
