Apple sued over claims website is inaccessible to visually impaired users

Monday, August 20, 2018
Apple has become the target of a new lawsuit, one that claims the iPhone producer’s website is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by not being fully accessible to blind or visually-impaired consumers, due to the way the website itself is coded.

According to theĀ filing, Mendez is described as a “visually impaired and legally blind person” who uses screen-reading software to access the internet. The software is able to either read out information seen on the screen or outputs it to a refreshable Braille display, and typically relies on the website being constructed in ways that it can read the contents.
