Hi Hayden, If you are talking about segregation that is a thing of the past in the U.S. However, descrimination is a totally different story. Descrimination is, and probably always will be, the human way of things.It seams most people have some sort of pinheaded descrimination based on someone's sex, disability, race, religion, or nationality.
With us though there are times companies can get away with descrimination simply because we don't have a large enough organization to fight for things like accessible video games or basic things like making companies like G.E. to produce talking microwaves for the general market. the organizations we do have such as NFB seam to pass right over such issues and they rarely if ever take up an issue or cause I think needs to be addressed. Perhaps if NFB, ACB, and AFB got together and seriously pushed for accessible vidio games for the XBox, Play Station, and Wii that might actually get those companies attention and bring them to the table at least. However, that's just dreaming because those organizations seam to not have any interest in taking up game accessibility as an important issue. However, that's not the only one where organizations like that have completely failed us. there are hundreds of devices from Track Phones to DVD Recorders that are totally inaccessible from an accessibility standpoint, and the NFB and friends sit by and do nothing, say nothing, and we are falling behind the technological revolution. There is frankly no excuse for companies not to add text to speech and other features to their phone, DVD Recorder, etc other than they wanted to cut costs somewhere, and we as customers of such devices are expendable.
