Poll: Is accessibility a consideration when you code?

Many developers write pages that are not as usable by a disabled person as they could be. Take this TechRepublic poll to let us know whether accessibility is a factor when you're coding applications.

In the HTML 5 Working Group, there is a massive amount of discussion around accessibility concerns and features. We have discussed that the vast majority of HTML authors completely ignore the existing options in HTML 4 to make Web pages accessible for disabled users. But if you ask any developer, I'm sure they will tell you that accessibility is a concern.

It's true that some applications simply cannot be made accessible for disabled users. For example, a blind person will never be able to play a first person shooter game.

So, behind the screen of an anonymous poll here on TechRepublic, let's find out how many of you actively work to put accessibility into your applications.
