I doubt this website would lose a material number of customers by retaining its current format. Hence, why change?

something that occured to me:

if the blind jumped on the bandwagon, wouldn't they miss it?

intriguing...

They can hear it coming, but they can't see it going.

Reading this, I wonder how I could be affected by the outcome of this case. I see two outcomes:

1. Target has to waste a little bit of money to accomodate the blind. I am neither blind nor a Target shopper, so this doesn't affect me.
2. The blind lose their case and have to deal with the difficulty of not being able to shop online. As they're used to adversity they'll probably come through all right. I remain indifferent to their plight.

So I really don't care, and have to wonder why any of you do.

What does bother me is how Citibank ATMs, which operate by a touchscreen rather than a key pad and therefore don't have brail, can be 'enhanced for the visually impaired.' Saying one's PIN number out loud doesn't strike me as practical, but I don't see what option there is other than an aurally-based program. Probably just a failure of imagination on my part.

Most banks have touchscreens and key pads with brail, around here anyway.

Ha, this is the inherit beauty of America. You can sue anybody for anything.
Anyone remember the stupid McDonald's fiasco from a few years ago?
"I'm suing you because the coffee was too hot."
How does not being able to surf the Target website hinder one's quality of life anyways?

How do you have a touchscreen with brail? It's a flat monitor screen on which the locations of things change fairly consistently.

well they are infringing upon some disabilities act.
but still, that act is stupid anyways.
yeah target should make a blind user friendly version of its site, but they shouldn't have to.
its not like target has stuff that amazon doesn't have..

Why would blind people even use the internet? I guess it gives them a place to go while being locked into some Institution for the Blind.

And whoever says "I'd rather be blind than deaf, so I could listen to music" is a fucking fool. Blind people can't see........need there be any more reasoning?

This is easily answerable. That way a blind person can be more independant and can easily access items to them without depending on others to drive them to the store, or for them to walk who knows how far just to buy some items they can get eaisly over the net. Almost the same reason i buy shit on the net.

Saves fucking time and the hassle of going out.

One day... society will collapse and everyone dependent on technology will fall into a fetal position and wither away starving to death looking at a can of corn.

I await this inevitable demise and am glad I have an acoustic guitar in my collection not to mention... plenty O strings.
