the good life in a digital age

side ‘benefits’ of accessibility constraints

Most days it is a problem for the RNIB that most commercial IT software isn’t accessible. But there are some (very slight) perks.

One of my colleagues fends off lots of cold calls from all sorts of companies wanting to speak to various directors. The IT suppliers seem to be the easiest to get rid off as she politely asks them if the software is accessible (she usually has to explain why that’s important to the RNIB) and that seems to do the trick in getting rid of 90% of the sales folk.
