It's not. There is little (if any) pressure exerted in the open-
source community to produce accessible software. There's some great
free or GPLed accessibility-related software out there, BUT it didn't
come about because of any sort of "pressure." This is different from
the case at, say, Sun or Microsoft or wherever, where they feel market
and economic and internal pressures to produce useful and accessible
stuff.
