Well, you probably wouldn't like the look or feel of an interface I 
would design for myself as a blind person.  No danger of having to 
suffer through it anyway, as I am not a developer.  I think I started 
this thread a couple days ago, and my point was, and is, that if WCAG 
2.0 guidelines are followed, the UI can look however you guys want, 
but still meet the needs of blind and other disabled users -- 
including the deaf.

I am not a developer -- but run a bunch of lists and have a little 
experience at web site accessibility testing and would be pleased to 
help out in that area in any way I can.
