I agree! I think trying to take leadership on something you know very little about is counterproductive and does little to help the cause. I know very little about the Mac, but that does not, in any way at all mean I don't support someone's right to choose a different operating system than me.

What I think Chris and others are saying is not that they wouldn't be
willing to help Mac users get accessibility.  However, I feel Mac users
should take the leadership in advocating for such.  Something that bothers
me is folks who don't take responsibility for their own accessibility
issues.  Again, if you start an accessibility project and need our help,I'm
sure Windows users, most of us, anyway, would be more than willing to help,
but please don't call us selfish because we don't take leadership on
something about which we know very little.

Thanks for listening.
