Accessibility benefits EVERYONE, not just people with disabilities.

Consider those who might find themselves "temporarily disabled." Maybe they've had LASIK surgery, so they can't see for hours. Or maybe a student is listening to someone in a video, but the speaker has a heavy accent—or perhaps they're speaking in a different language.

Thank you for writing this article and making a conscious effort to see accessibility as a higher priority.

That's a very good point. I should have been more conscious about accessibility issues.
