Expedia, Inc. announced that the company has entered into a collaboration agreement with the National Federation of the Blind, the leading organization of blind people in the United States. The two organizations will work in partnership with the goal of enhancing and improving accessibility for the blind on the Expedia.com and Travelocity.com websites and mobile applications.
As a result of this agreement, blind travelers visiting Expedia or Travelocity brand sites or accessing the mobile applications using text-to-speech screen readers and Braille display technologies will have stronger and more reliable access to the two sites. This agreement paves the way for Expedia and the National Federation of the Blind to work together in implementing approved standards on both the Expedia and Travelocity brand websites so that Expedia can maintain its role as the leader in providing accessible, online travel services to the blind community.
