Apps can be a game-changer for people with low vision
The article Sweetgreen’s blind spot? – Apps can be a game-changer for people with low vision — if companies build them right discusses a current case of the fight for necessary improvements in Sweetgreen’s online ordering app. More importantly, the article documents the importance of raising developer awareness – of both the necessity and the possibility – to include accessibility features in their apps. The topic has generated legal cases: Target, Amazon, and others, with the notable case in 2008 which resulted in a settlement to make iTunes accessible to blind people. Nonetheless, the author notes it’s not about legal cases, it’s about solutions. It’s not about convenience, it’s about being able to work and navigate the real world with the aid of well-designed online apps.
