Judge allows class action against Target website

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A federal judge in California certified a class action lawsuit against Target Corp (TGT.N) brought by plaintiffs claiming the discount retailer’s website is inaccessible to the blind, according to court documents.

Next up:  A class action lawsuit brought against the Louvre for making its paintings inaccessible to the blind, followed by a suit against God for making sunlight inaccessible to the blind.

Anyway, the point of the lawsuit is that Target.com requires the use of a mouse—not keyboard-friendly, and it lacks alt-text for its images, so voice-over programs can’t read them.

Any blind people reading this?  What are your thoughts?
