Software in general is lacking in its accessibility; not just for visual impairment but all disabilities. The reason, unfortunately, is the bottom line. Users with disabilities make up such a small fraction of the overall user-base that it's not profitable to allocate the proper resources needed to make things completely accessible.Additionally, there's a ton of different disabilities to consider and it's infeasible to account for everything in one all-encompassing solution. That's why developers rely on their add-on community to fill in those gaps.Although one could certainly argue (and this may be your point here, Lesley) that of all the software companies out there, Blizzard is one of the few that should have enough coin to allocate more resources to such an endeavor.
