Vint Cerf Says Technology Should Be More Accessible

Vinton, “Vint,” Cerf is known as the “Father of the Internet.” He is also hearing-impaired, as is his wife. He says that computer interfaces and devices should be much more accessible, and that accessible features should not be an added afterthought. About 360,000,000 people worldwide have a hearing disability, and about one in three households in the US has a member who has a disability. I don’t think anyone could disagree with the idea that the Web and all our devices should be more accessible for people with disabilities. My personal pet peeve is the tiny type used on many websites and in printed materials.
