Over at the PowerMapper blog I’ve explored both sides of a great debate: should screen readers be detectable in analytics? It’s an issue that pits accessibility against privacy, with legal complications thrown in for fun. While the technical difficulties of the question make it a pub discussion rather than reality, it’s still a question worth exploring.
I want to thank everyone who supplied quotes and insight on the issue. They made this a fascinating piece to write, particularly as many people took the exact opposite stance than I was expecting from them.
