They were told by the programmers that they need to rewrite the complete website to make the necessary accessibility changes.Which is really, really shocking if it's true. Basic web coding conventions have been in place for a very, very long time now. Screen readers generally have little to no problem working with web-based interfaces that are not using novel controls (and novel controls are constantly being invented, but most sites have a smattering of these, if any).
Links, buttons, dropdowns, edit boxes, combo boxes, and the list goes on are not new and should be able to be accessed "straight out of the box" on any web interface. If they can't be, then someone has done something royally screwy to make that so.
