Beyoncé’s Website Violates Americans With Disabilities Act, Lawsuit Claims



A class action suit asserts that Beyonce.com is inaccessible to blind users.
Beyoncé’s company Parkwood Entertainment is facing a class action lawsuit. 
The website violates the Americans with Disabilities Act by being “an exclusively visual interface” without any coded alt-text behind the images.
It cites a lack of accessible drop-down menus and the inability to use a keyboard instead of a mouse.
