There’s always a fine line when designing a platform; optimizing for most users while still enabling unique use cases.
Thank you for sharing your perspective – it’s great to hear your story and how Android’s freedom…

Hey! Thanks for responding! I agree that’s always tough balance (do it a lot at our organisation!) – I guess for me I’m curious to know how much this has been considered an accessibility issue.

Taking subjective preferences aside, we wouldn’t make buildings that worked for most people and not install lifts for those that can’t use stairs. We’d still make a beautiful building, and awesome lifts inside.

What I’m curious to know is if anyone has thought about this in terms of accessibility, and if different usage requirements were taken into consideration? Being an ally here for those that are highly visually stimulated (a good example of this is Kindle’s green paper filter, whereby the visual noise of reading is reduced for the reader with reduced black and white contrast). This is an emerging field of understanding I imagine Google would want to be involved in helping progress, and I appreciate this might feel like it’s coming from nowhere!
