Disability Equity: The Cheerleader Rushes the Net

Posted by safeandsilent on March 13, 2013

I blogged recently about the myriad apologies I had received for accessibility failures.

In the blog, I noted that many accessibility equity programs are run not by people WITH disabilities, but FOR us. Often these programs are subsumed under diversity programs, which just serves to underscore that you think of us all as the Other, whether it is our complexion, our gender, our cultural heritage, or our ability that is not the same as the mainstream – we are Different, therefore we are Diversity.
