Another lawsuit by blind users has been filed. This time, it’s Oracle under fire. Oracle sued by blind workers in Texas.
The suit, filed in Texas state court, alleges Oracle’s human resources software and other products do “not provide equal access to blind persons using screen access technology”. One plaintiff says he is unable to review or enter hours worked, leave taken or information concerning employees he supervises without the help of a sighted colleague. The suit names Oracle and at least three Texas officials. It alleges the Oracle software replaced a package that was largely accessible to blind users.
