Wel, Curtis, I guess you could decline to comment, but, as I see it,
this "seal" could be a terrible thing or it could be a very useful thing.
Terrible if companies stop listening to comments about how their products
could be made more accessible than they already are because their product
already has the "seal of accessibility". Also, we'd probably be interested
in being around when the guidelines for this seal get written up.
"I broke my left hand and three of the fingers of my right hand last
week. Due to permanent nerve damage, I will be unable to use the last
three fingers on my left hand for the rest of my life. This product Model:
XYZ123 from Acme Corporation is designed for ease of use with
functionally challenged folks. I guess I'll buy that one.
The definition of this seal had better be clear and effective or it
would be better not to have it at all. Is this the formalization of
accreditation for electronics?
