Note that people who use magnification (i.e. who have low vision) are 
going to have differing requirements from those who use speech or Braille 
output via screen readers.  Ideally the UI would work well for both groups 
but I'm not qualified to talk about the former, only the latter.

Huh?  This makes no sense to me.  People who only have hearing impairments 
shouldn't have any more problems with comprehention or reading than people 
with only vision impairments.  By all means make allowances for people 
with reading/learning/cognitive disabilities, but please don't atribute 
the need for this to something unrelated.

Disclaimer: I am not deaf.  A deaf person should be consulted about the 
requirements that deaf people may have.

Ok, will do.
