I think online shopping is the best thing since electric wheelchairs in the lives of disabled people who are unable to handle a physical shopping trip. Unfortunately, research has revealed today that the same cannot be said for price comparison websites.

Do you have thoughts or experiences to share on this? I’ve never used a price comparison website myself, so it would be interesting to hear from disabled people who have.

    As a blind computer user, online store/service accessibility is getting worse, not better. Not that I’d ever use a “payday loans” loanshark BUT, Wonga’s “Sliders” USP encapsyulates the poor accessibility of comparison sites, online stores etc. Too many sites use Flash GUIs which are neither accessible nor navigable to screenreader users. Even if html UIs are available, buttons are not labelled, tickboxes are confusing and drop-down boxes

    most comparison web sites do not do disability travel insurance or car insurance. Shopping on line for holidays is a pain in the arse as they dont tell you enough to make an informed decision regarding accessibility.
