Digital Britain isn’t accessible enough

A new post on Techradar, based on one blogger’s unhappy experiences of accessibility – both online and in the real world:

“What will it take take for Deaf and Disabled people to be a real part of so called Digital Britain?” Smith says. “Why do we have to fight for our access needs so much? Where are there no live subtitles streaming online at conferences? Where’s the audio description? Why aren’t websites compatible with screen readers? Why can’t conferences get the access right?”

They’re good questions. Does anybody have the answers?
