The practical reality is that a11y requirements can be mutually
exclusive. What works for one set of a11y issues, need not, and often
actively hinders, a different set of a11y issues.

I'm aware of the research that, if it works, promises to meet any/all
a11y requirements, without hampering any.  However, the current
projected cost of the hardware that solution requires, is in the high
three, low four digit range.   (If that hardware is more popular than
projected, with the primary audience, it might drop to the low three
digit range. However, that is a might big _if_.)

How much the software for that hardware will cost, is anybody's guess.
