Respond to the Market
According to the 2010 US census, 56.7 million people — 19 percent of the population — live with a disability. This is a large minority that should be taken into consideration. Those of us with disabilities are people too and should be treated as such. The average age of our population is also rising and even though disability can affect anyone at any time, once people reach age 65, they are six times as likely to acquire a disability. Baby Boomers are not just aging, they control 70% of all disposable income in the United States creating a call to action for accessibility. The market needs to respond to those with the buying power; an inaccessible market will cause the market will hurt.
With making services more accessible, society would be responding to the market and in doing so, be creating a greater market base. So, why not adapt the non-accessible features to allow any consumer with any mobility type to utilize any service? This would be a win-win for the growing disability community and the market.
