"From an accessibility standpoint, why is the committee putting the onus on the individual to have to request it every time? We don't only caption videos if someone asks--captions should always be available. We don't only install elevators if a person who can't take the stairs is hired; they're already in buildings. The infrastructure to allow people to participate is the responsibility of the institution, not of the individual." (1/2)
@MLISrevenge More like the few extroverts on staff are weirded out by not having People! to Talk to! and didn't think through the implications of the decision.
