I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    I was injured at work in 2001
    I ended up fired then told I was not retrainable because of the medication I take. So here I am a 40 year old woman whos life is going nowhere fast and all I want is a chance to prove everyone wrong. So if anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them.

    • Favor open formats that represent a technological least common denominator, and degrade gracefully.

Rather than attempt to address every assistive technology, and every disability, a general approach consisting of open formats, graceful degradability, and alternative formats (including "least common denominator" formats such as plain text), alongside common sense approaches to accessible design are best.
