Mr. Rob Sinclair (Director of Accessibility, Microsoft) asked the audience this afternoon whether it had any problems with ICT skills. You would not perhaps expect people to admit that at an e-Inclusion conference. But some did. Rob himself recognised that, no matter how much accessibility we achieve, in the end we cannot keep up with available technology. He asked though whether anybody in the audience believed technological development was likely to slow down. Some hands went up again. But Rob disagreed. However desirable - at least to give us time to catch up with what is already here - Microsoft's representative said technology will not care. The pace is just not going to slow down. Therefore, it seems, availability will always outrun accessibility.
