Voice Recognition vs. JAWS - Accessibility Needs of Users

The accessability needs of users are different based on the type of disability. My needs as a person with a repetitive stress injury, who uses voice recognition software, are different than the person with blindness who uses JAWS. I use voice-recognition software, but find that many web sites are not accessible for voice-recognition software. Most web sites seem to be accessible for persons with blindness and/or low vision. Assessability should be for all types of disabilities. I think if the software developers had input from actual people with disabilities they would be more sensitive to needs.
