Ebay improves user experience for blind Americans

SAN JOSE, Calif. Ebay has announced a partnership with the National Federation of the Blind to create more opportunities for blind Americans to access Ebay as buyers and sellers.

According to the company, Ebay.com now includes enhanced features for users to buy, bid and sell using the keyboard alone, as well as improved ways to navigate content using assistive technologies such as screen access software.

“We have great respect for the advocacy role the NFB plays in creating employment opportunities for the blind,” said John Donahoe, president and CEO of Ebay Inc. “Ebay has built a reputation as a driver of job creation by helping entrepreneurs start up and grow their businesses. We are excited about connecting with an even wider audience through this partnership and providing blind Americans with easier access to our marketplace for both buying and selling.”
