Why is it that you have to receive a demand letter or get sued before you make your website accessible? How do we get companies and individuals to be more proactive?

Unfortunately, companies treat accessibility like PCI or Security Compliance.  They don't realize it's a problem until it is.  Aside from that, there isn't exactly a large billboard out there saying:

Your website must be accessible by law!

Until then, I guess we'll fight for the cause!

I think there's a widespread attitude of  "It's not affecting enough people to justify the cost.". The only thing that mindset does is turn away a massive group of potential customers...I think that would cost a lot more
