Oh, I entirely agree Andrew: but reasonable men and accessibility zealots are not good bedfellows*. I once read a post by a totally blind chap complaining that Corel Draw was not properly accessible to him as some drawing actions had no keyboard equivalents, which I found, quite frankly, silly. Like me complaining that, being cack-handed and -footed, I am discriminated against because I cannot play football for Man U!

Or as patently over-reacting as the recent regulation in the UK that all new houses have to be built for wheelchair users even though they comprise a very small proportion of the population, and to do so poses considerable practical problems for very small houses and flats.

* Before anyone jumps on me, I have no problem at all with making reasonable accommodation. It's the unreasonable PC-driven stuff that riles me! As someone with sight problems, I accept I have to work within them rather than expecting the world to go out of its way on my behalf.
