173/365 Wut?

I am a huge advocate for accessibility of all types and make my living as a web accessibility specialist but sometimes the laws around this make me go “wut?”.

Take for instance the time I had to evaluate a learning course for air-traffic controllers, making sure it was accessible to the blind, deaf, and folks with low vision. None of those people could, for safety reasons, become air-traffic controllers.

Today I am remediating a file that discusses critical repairs for multi-family housing and places all accessibility issues before life-safety issues. I say remediate all life-safety issues first, then convenience issues.
