The easiest way to create fully accessible content is to create a company wide policy that ensures that content need to be created in an accessible way. This prevents accessibility being thrown into a project as an afterthought where it is much harder to implement.
Creating Policies and Procedures that activity deal with accessibility will ensure that accessibility is considered at every stage of a project, and not left to someone preventing a project from being completed in the final stages due to inaccessible content.
