> Subject: General lack of accessibility of websites
> Could you please humour my ignorance of what your organisation actually does. I thought you were the movers and shakers of the internet and WWW. I assumed you set standards, but i think I might be wrong?
> I am a retired professional who use to work with visually impaired people. I am visually impaired myself. 
> I could spend all week sending emails to websites who discriminate and exclude people like me, from every ethnic group, who can read. And I have sent many, with simple practical solutions. 
> Who can I contact to educate all websites designers about how to make a few simple changes to websites so we can read them, or buy their products. I am left dumbfounded that this obvious and basic need is ignored. But I am not blaming them completely, I don’t know what I don’t know.
> I can appreciate that fully sighted or fully hearing people, can’t imagine an unknown experience, just as I will never know what it is like to see clearly with 20/20 vision, but i Imagine it’s like watching a movie in 4k or 8k. 
> Could you please help direct me to where I can be the person to help change this unnecessary oversight ?
> Thanks
