There are many people with certain cognitive disabilities that can use screen reading software and other auditory forms of access. They can also use dictation programs to perform functions as well.

I certainly understand folks with low-literacy, or cognitive problems using the Web. I guess I don't see how the non-literate can without a literate helper. Perhaps there is a definition of non-literate/illiterate that is not what I assume it to be. I don't what to belabor the point, but if you can't read, how much can good icons help?
