The future must be accessible
I was sitting at McDonalds and I wondered how people with blindness can use the automated ordering Kiosk; they probably can't. The future must be accessible to the maximum number of people. If this is not the case it is a wasted opportunity.
It would be cheaper to integrate accessibility in the start of your project but if the technology is in the testing phase you can program it later while asking what the accessibility issues are. Ensure your project is tested by people with a wide range of disabilities.
Future technologies must be accessible otherwise people will be left behind. If your competitors are accessible and you are not idea it could be you that is left behind.
