TM’s Accessible Technology

Ticketmaster has teamed up with the National Federation of the Blind to use screen access technology to make its website fully accessible to blind consumers.

As part of the deal, TM will institute accessibility guidelines, develop a program to convert website text into synthesized speech or Braille and appoint an accessibility coordinator and committee.

TM has also agreed to submit its website to the NFB’s Nonvisual Accessibility Web Certification program, which monitors sites to ensure they remain compliant and works with web developers to remedy any issues that arise.
