If I understand your complaint, what you point out isn't
inaccessibility. I think you were saying you could only choose what
was in the combo boxes. That is the way the survey was designed. He
was looking for specific kinds of answers, not open-ended free-flow answers.
If something doesn't work for us, as blind persons, we can be quick
to say it is inaccessible. While accessibility is a serious problem,
we need to ensure that it is true before calling someone out in public.
