    Target can be sued if website inaccessible to blind

    Is there some sort of special computer web browser which reads html code out loud to blind people so they can "experience" the web? Has Target hidden the html code on its website so this cannot happen?

    Just what am I missing here?!

    The plaintiffs charge that target.com fails to meet the minimum standard of web accessibility. It lacks compliant alt-text, an invisible code embedded beneath graphic images that allows screen readers to detect and vocalize a description of the image to a blind computer user. It also contains inaccessible image maps and other graphical features, preventing blind users from navigating and making use of all of the functions of the website. And because the website requires the use of a mouse to complete a transaction, blind Target customers are unable to make purchases on target.com independently.
