Re: Is Research It really necessary?


As a sighted technician, I frequently find accessibility product functions baffling. It is a simple matter of experience and habit. If I was paid to learn access functions (beyond very basic stuff), I would. Otherwise there is no incentive. I don't have much patience for stuff I don't have to use.

Comparing a sighted person's untrained capability / ability to do
anything with their ears would be like asking a 15-year-old to race
NASCAR! Of course they would fail miserably! We don't have what we
have because of biology; we have it because we've trained ourselves,
been coached by others, developed skills sighted people don't need
(but, of course, should have).
