Equal Communications Access and what it means.
To me, it means that Deaf people should not be shut away in a world where no-one communicates with them. Communication is the vehicle of love and companionship - why should they be excluded from the fellowship of other people? The web has made a tremendous difference in terms of communication; one can find things out really quickly; it would be a pity if this accessibility to all was lost as we move towards more video and audio on the web.
And let's not forget the blind in all this as well. They need audio provision as much as Deaf people need captioning.
