Earlier today, I was reading Ars Technica, and saw the following headline:

Bringing American Idol to the visually impaired

To be fair, the article is actually about technology for helping people with macular degeneration (a significant form of vision loss, particularly among the elderly) by adjusting the contrast of a television image. There is only the most passing reference to “American Idol,” the thankfully-maligned TV show. Even so, my reaction to the headline was:

Why should the visually impaired have to suffer too?
