hi Tom.

this is disturbingly true, in fact I myself don't own an accessible mobile phone for precisely the same reason, ---- well my phone is perfectly accessible in that I can pick up and phone with it, but not in any other way.

It is however interesting to view this problem in light of my own research.

while the atitude of the corperations does indeed have a major effect, having viewed the academic literature and various documents used in the debate on making disability related laws, I have to say it's not adequate to discussing the problem.

the vast majority produced recently tends to what to ignore the fact disability causes any access issues at all, and say it's all "society's" fault, blaming everything to do with access about the basic setup of society.

in fact people's refusal to acknolidge the extra effort and cost of living with a disability is and want to catagorize it all as social is rather irritating.

this is one of the major forces behind my own phd, an attempt to defign disability on a far more basic level, and through that deffiniation establish questions like what it is for a thing to be accessible, ---- eg, one major factor will be cost.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
