Accessibility Only For Disabilities?

In Accessibility Only For Disabilities?, Tommy Olsson asks if web accessibility is limited to supporting assistive technologies.

His answer to that question is the same as mine:

Accessibility means that you don’t put up barriers, not for people and not for computer programs. An accessible web page, with my definition, makes the information accessible for all visitors, regardless of disabilities or which user agent they use.

    No. web accessibility is about making allowances for people with disabilities. Software is incidental.
