Website successfully sued for lack of visually impaired access

Andrea Januta reports that a grocery and pharmacy chain has been required to set aside $250,000 to revise its online site, and to pay the plaintiff’s legal fees, after a  Miami (USA) federal judge ruled that the website violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. The plaintiff, who is legally blind, did not sue for damages, but to require that the site be made accessible to online screen reading technology.
