Martin Pilkington of M Cubed Software:
Unless we experience something or are affected by something personally, we usually don’t care about it as much as we know we should. Try closing your eyes and doing something. Odds are you’ll end up opening your eyes for a peek at some point. You’re lucky to be able to do that, some people can’t.
I’ve not got a disability that limits my ability to use the computer and don’t personally know anyone with one, but I do have a strong sense that we should all be treated equal and have equal opportunities. When we can do something to help someone else and it is very cheap or very easy to do, then we should do it. Making accessible applications can be very easy and not take too much time, but can make a world of difference to some people.
