Oracle sued by blind workers in Texas

Oracle is being taken to task in a lawsuit that complains software it sold to the state of Texas is unusable by blind employees.

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.
