   in such telephone, or if a provider of mobile service arranges for the

   accessible to and usable by individuals who are blind or have a visual
   impairment, unless doing so is not achievable, except that this subpart
   shall not impose any requirement on such manufacturer or provider—

   (1) To make accessible or usable any Internet browser other than a
   browser that such manufacturer or provider includes or arranges to
   include in the telephone; or

   (2) To make Internet content, applications, or services accessible or
   usable (other than enabling individuals with disabilities to use an
   included browser to access such content, applications, or services).

   (b) Industry flexibility. A manufacturer or provider may satisfy the
   requirements of this subpart with respect to such telephone or services
   by—
