People with disabilities have to come up with all sorts of innovative ways of hacking into inaccessible systems. Why not provide the space for this hacking to take place by subsidizing assistive technologies, measuring usage and paying users for innovations that come out of the data? Actually I guess that is already what facebook and google are, but this would be an extension to users with documented disabilities.

       Why pay them ? Why not do something more useful, like only treating them as second-class citizens (instead of third-class citizens).

       I rather like this. YouTube has no shortage of documentaries by disabled people going about their lives hacking this and that and is a fascinating resource for engineering study
