Back in the good ole days, I was working at a U.S. Army Post on a language called CSP. There as a programmer there who was totally blind and used touch typing and a screen reader to do all his COBOL work. Excellent programmer, had been there for years. He was a beta tester for several screen reader software companies.
When we started doing web sites (VBScript none of this .Net stuff), we had to research and use U.S. Code Section 503 regulations for creating sites. Then the ADA stuff started hitting us. His experiences can in very handy.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects! - Lazarus Long
