“The alleged inaccessibility of Domino’s website and app impedes access to the goods and services of its physical pizza franchises” - wow, I’m taken aback by this court statement. I still remember the times when we simply CALLED a phone number to order a pizza… if indeed the web ordering is inaccessible, the phone still works. One could argue that if a business doesn’t have a web presence at all, that makes them inaccessible from the get-go… but I digress.
Recently, Mediavine did the session about the subject of accessibility (here’s a direct link to the video : https://www.facebook.com/mediavinepublishernetwork/videos/242173403517323/), and Rachel from thestayathomechef.com mentioned (in the comments) that she’s being sued because of the web accessibility thing Yikes, this is real!
Here’s my question:
I’ve noticed that some blogs (usually non-food related, often in news space) have an option to play an embedded sound file. They label this option as “listen to this article”. Sometimes it’s a robotic-sounding voice reading an article, other times - it’s a real person reading it, podcast-style.
I wonder if that’s something worth pursuing? Not only because of accessibility, but also due to increasing popularity of voice-search (Siri, Amazon Alexa etc.).
