Accessibility not a priority?

Mark Pilgrim is determined to change your mind:

Since she was not born blind, Jackie understands sighted concepts like colors, and she still talks about colors with her mother in terms of things that were in her life “before”. The one thing she does not talk about is the car accident that killed her father and left her blind; it is only referred to indirectly by prepositions: “before” and “after”. “This is green like the walls of the living room before.” “It’s sort of like that pink sweater you wore before, only lighter.” And so forth.
