It's not the manufacturer's product that fails or succeeds. It's how the
agency uses it. The manufacturer is only supposed to provide an
offering that allows the agency to use a PC interface.
Nothing in the straw man says anything about how
non-disabled people can use the device -- we're not forcing anyone to
use a PC to control the copier when they could easily do it by buttons.
