Abstract: Digital accessibility is recognized as a fundamental tool for an egalitarian society. Nevertheless, software accessibility is an under addressed topic in the discipline of software engineering and the academy in general. As a result, its development and implementation is compromised. This problem is depicted here with the help of some experiments that shows the poor attention which is dedicated to this topic. Some hypotheses that try to explain this problem are formulated, and some possible solutions are debated. As a conclusion, some insights are given and a new possible researched avenue is presented.
