A statistic and article here that may be useful re. the potential
profitability of accessibility:
" Most new gadgets are designed for agile hands. Talk of the latest gadgets
tends to be about sleek, shiny gizmos with little buttons and copious
functions. But the big growth area for consumer electronics may lie with
something less flashy than the latest music player from Apple or mobile from
Motorola. Instead, the future may lie in devices that care for an aging
population, used to living on their own and with money to spend. The issue
is particular pressing in the US, where there are currently 36 million
Americans over the age of 65.
More pressingly, the generation of baby boomers coming, with 5,500 of them
turning 65 every day. "
