In my opinion, the "best case scenario" is a trick to bypass the real 
world limitations. The "usual case" could be that I must buy the latest 
version of Windows, buy the latest version of JAWS, buy a particular 
high-end braille display that is compatible with JAWS, buy a particular 
type of computer that supports all previous things, and perhaps also 
subscribe a high-speed Internet connection to access content.

Then, if because of my disability I MUST pay more to be able to access 
content, because that is the only way I can access it (my best and 
expensive case), perhaps it is better for me to hire somebody that 
accesses content with fewer resources and then read them to me...

For me, "accessibility supported" is not a question of "best case", butr 
"enough options", so I can choose and obtain -more or less- the same 
result than a person without a disability, and at the same cost.

IMHO, of course <grin>
