Hello, Gregg and all.

I totally agree with you, the efforts have to be made by both authors 
and user agents. ONLY.

In my opinion, the third part of the equation (users), should not have 
to do any extra effort to adjust accessibility settings, because if they 
don't know how to do it, or if they encounter extra difficulties finding 
the right  settings or adjusting them, they will be excluded in the 
first place.

 From my point of view, user agents should have accessibility options 
enabled by default (or perhaps ask some questions about accessibility 
settings the first time that the browser is run), so users that DON'T 
want that information must disable it, instead of forcing users that 
want that information to guess how to enable it.

Regards,
Ramón.
