Visual Verification Lockout: Please Don’t GoDaddy!

Shownotes

UltraHost

Web hosting for the blind community and beyond!

GoDaddy

Does not allow blind people to order their services online. Please avoid doing business with the company until they fix this.

TicketMaster

Also does not allow blind people to order online. Even worse here as we are forced to miss out on all discounts and other special offers only provided via the Internet.

Yahoo!

Yahoo’s “accessible” visual verification is a blackhole since company representatives never actually call!

Google

Does not allow the blind to comment on most blogs, create new blogs, sign up for accounts or do anything else that requires passing the company’s completely inaccessible word verification!

Natalie Brown

Listen to my favorite POP/R&B musician sing Locked in the Shadows as you think about the implications of the first word of that song’s title with respect to inaccessible visual verification!

One opinion on “Visual Verification Lockout: Please Don’t GoDaddy!

  1. I wrote another e-mail note to Google, addressed to “Support,” “Feedback,” and “Webmaster. In hopes of finding the new alternative and setting up an account, I ran into the same old problem.
    Of course I reference B.A.J., your efforts, their mention in a “mainstream” journal, and Google’s promise to fix the problem.

    Assuming my note isn’t witty enough or boring enough the be the straw that breaks the $400-per-share cammel’s back, I have an idea: Let’s get several bonafide postal addresses for Google.

    Then we break our typewriters out of mothballs and send them scads of postal mail. The goal should be no visual capture by spring, I.E. by 3-21-05.

    Let’s get out the old Underwood, Adler, Royal or Hermes, and prove a point!
