What's wrong with buying eink ereaders for most everyone to use and then a few iPod touchs for those that are blind?
From a common sense perspective, no problem at all. From a legal/rights perspective, I can appreciate the argument that if you intend to purchase a reader to be loaned out, and you have a choice between a reader that meets the needs of one group vs the needs of two groups, it might be fairer to select the latter, even at an increase in cost. Otherwise, no matter how you divide your funds into two readers, someone will accuse you of purchasing an unfair ratio of one to the other.
