Misconception

Site owner: blind people won’t be using my web site

Reality

Accessibility not just about the blind, but…

Many Possible scenarios (and solutions):

online shopper with color blindness (user control of style sheets)

reporter with repetitive stress injury (keyboard equivalents for mouse-driven commands; access-key)

online student who is deaf (captioned audio portions of multimedia files)

accountant with blindness (appropriate markup of tables, alternative text, abbreviations, and acronyms; synchronization of visual, speech, and braille display)

classroom student with dyslexia (use of supplemental graphics; freezing animated graphics; multiple search options)

retiree with aging-related conditions, managing personal finances (magnification; stopping scrolling text; avoiding pop-up windows)

supermarket assistant with cognitive disability (clear and simple language; consistent design; consistent navigation options; multiple search options)

teenager with deaf-blindness, seeking entertainment (user control of style sheets; accessible multimedia; device-independent access; labelled frames; appropriate table markup)  (Source: http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/PWD-Use-Web/#usage)
