Hi Yeliz,

I agreed or disagreed with statements for complex reasons not
represented in the survey.

For example: Accessibility is for blindness.

I think as implemented accessibility helps blindness but leaves out
almost all other visual disabilities.


For example, visual readers with low vision don't need keyboard access
or alt-text most of the time.  The contrast rules in WCAG 2.0 actually
harm people with photo-sensitivity and blurring disorders like
cataracts.

So I could have answered that question agree or disagree depending on context.
