[Accessibility] Candidate Quote 2

Far too often people with disabilities are excluded from participation in the benefits that technology provides in society today. However, it has also
been widely demonstrated that technology can profoundly enhance the lives of persons with disabilities. A properly designed technology tool is often a
disabled person's best choice for active participation in society--whether at home, at work or at play.

Consensus standards will facilitate the creation and distribution of assistive/adaptive technologies and user agents appropriate to a range of end-user
abilities and ensure that applications and operating system services operate in cooperation, rather than in conflict, with such technologies. We applaud
the Free Standards Group for organizing this consensus process.
