Given that Apple have just removed Do Not Track from Safari because it was being used for tracking via “fingerprinting”, the decision to add trackability for assistive tech is *baffling.*

Léonie Watson wrote very clearly on this specific issue years ago:

@laura they did..what now? track users of assistive tech? but.. why? what do they want to achieve? I can imagine so much, but.. why. Remove one tracking method, add another one? Oof.

@laura haha, and people still claim they care about privacy 😆
