Okay, here is my take on Nielsen's latest post.
"Accessibility has failed as a way to make computers usable for disabled users." Thus begins a newsletter by Jakob Nielsen. And had it not been written by someone a great many people take seriously in the UX industry I likely would just have dismissed it.

m8 you’ve had 40-odd years of the PC, 30 years of the internet being publicly available in Australia, and not much less than that since online banking and inter-account transfers have been around. If you’re unwilling to move away from a dinosaur like cheques and live in a fantasy where "We don't do any banking online because we're not familiar enough with computers. Computers don't figure largely in our lives,” you can’t be helped.
This is a bullshit story about a bullshit non-issue.
