I wonder if anything could be done about it? 

There is, but it will result in a loss of at least US$10^20 in the value
of corporations domiciled in the United States.

(I'm referring to declaring that all patents issued in the United States
since 1990 are null and void, because they were issued in violation of
USPTO Rules and Regulations (as admitted by the USPTO under oath), US
Case Law ( as noted by both USPTO & SCUSA), US Statute Law (as noted by
both USPTO and SCUSA), and US Constitutional Law (as noted by both USPTO
and SCUSA).

Of course, doing so will result in an immediate loss of several trillion
dollars of non-existent value in corporations that have invested in patents.

Surely they are breaking "equality" legislation in many countries.

Doesn't matter.

a) As a general rule of thumb, the sole purpose of organizations that
ostensibly aid those with a11y requirements, is to maximize their own
revenue, and further ghettoize those with a11y requirements;

b) Tools for those with a11y requirements are purchased from party d,
for party c, by party b, using funds from party a. There is no
accountability in the process for either ensuring that the tools work,
or that the organization is getting the most bang for the buck. Indeed,
the economics are designed to maximize revenue for party d, with minimal
satisfaction of party c, and maximum revenue loss for party a.
