I'm pulling together justifications for taking Section 508 training on the company's tab. For the web part of my work, it's an easy sell - "508's the law. You don't have any 508 experts on the web development staff."

But I'm a little unsure how to claim accessibility also impacts the classic technical writing (read: writing documentation) side of my job.

So the general question is, how have accessibility issues and/or Section 508 impacted you? Are there any sweeping statements I can make about accessibility and technical writing to defend my request to get the EASI/University of Southern Maine certificate?
