web accessibility for the apathetic

Hacknot: “If you’re like me, you approach the subject of accessibility with a certain self-conscious guilt. On the one hand, you recognize that there are excellent ethical and legal reasons for making your applications – be they web-based or rich client – accessible to those with sensory or cognitive impairments; but on the other hand you can’t ignore the fact that the extra work required to add that accessibility is only going to make a difference to a very small percentage of your users.”

i’m not apathetic about it. i’m audience oriented…. i just have a very narrow understanding of my audience….
