Travelocity to Make its Web Site More Accessible to Blind Users
BALTIMORE Jan. 17, 2011 July 1, 2011 March 30, 2012
Pursuant to the agreement, Travelocity will develop a comprehensive accessibility program that will include the development of an accessibility guidelines manual, and the appointment of both an accessibility coordinator and an accessibility committee.
Additionally, Travelocity will continue to work with officials of the National Federation of the Blind to ensure that the Travelocity services remain accessible to the blind. Travelocity will submit its Web site to the NFB Nonvisual Accessibility (NFB-NVA) Web Certification program, a rigorous procedure by which Web sites and applications that have made efforts to be accessible to the blind can be identified and recognized. The NFB-NVA Web Certification program continuously monitors participating sites to ensure that they remain compliant with certification criteria. If a site remains accessible, its certification is renewed on an annual or a version basis. If accessibility issues arise, the National Federation of the Blind will work with the site developers to remedy them.
