Shopping Carts For The Blind

PS. Great to think that even though I haven't been around much in the last few years, Cre8 is still the first place I look for help with problems like these! You all rock!

Seedlings doesn't require registration before putting things in a shopping cart.

You'd probably have to go full out custom to make it work because the vast majority of carts ask for things that would be ridic to ask a blind person—CVV, etc. I can't even read that stuff.
Since this stuff is legislated—accessibility—but not enforced reliably on smaller folks, wouldn't PayPal and Google have to comply? If so, why not force them that way?

For what it's worth, accessibility is *not* legislated for web sites, and there is no guarantee that Paypal or Google's eCommerce systems would comply. I haven't reviewed them recently, so I don't know their current status, but there's no guarantee that they'd stay accessible.
That said, trend-wise, it's far more likely that they'll become more accessible than less.
There's at least one ecommerce plug-in for WordPress - eShop - which is specifically constructed to be fully accessible.

Formmail.pl can be customized to work with simple PayPal basic payments. I think that PayPal basic is accessible to the blind. No ecommerce software or custom programming required (except for customizing the Formmail.pl forms handling program).

And Miriam, it's good to see you too! Your "Charlatan’s Web" post was awesome!
