Legally-blind PLAYBOY Magazine fan DONALD NIXON has recently filed suit against the iconic men's magazine because he contends that PLAYBOY does NOT sufficiently accommodate its visually-impaired readers!!!
DONALD NIXON has filed suit in a New York court which contends that Playboy is in violation of Federal Anti-Discrimination Laws for "... constructing and maintaining a website that is inaccessible to visually-impaiersd individuals..."
“During Plaintiff’s visits to the Website, the last occurring in November 2018, Plaintiff encountered multiple access barriers that denied Plaintiff full and equal access to the facilities, goods and services offered to the public and made available to the public, the suit claimed.
Those barriers, the suit claims, include lack of alternative text (“alt-text”), or a text equivalent, empty links, redundant links, and linked images missing alt-text.
“If the Website was equally accessible to all,” the suit said, “Plaintiff could independently navigate the Website and complained the desired transaction as sighted individuals do.”
The suit is seeking both injunctive relief and compensatory damages."
