A very good read [Ed..]
Yes, it is about recognizing humanity in all of its diversity and doing our very best to give everyone the experience they came for. However, making websites accessible isn’t a charitable act. It’s not a nod to an edge-case scenario to satisfy a requirement somewhere, nor is it about spending money to put in features that are only going to benefit a few people to give us the warm fuzzies inside. At the end of the day, it’s good business. After all, we’re talking about impacting 56.7 million potential users…
Usually we disregard accessibility because we don’t realize the large impact of that decision. As human beings, we collectively suffer from something called the “False-Consensus Effect”.
