(Reuters) – Take out startup Eatsa is now being sued by disability rights advocates as a result of including accessibility features to your blind.
Eatsa lets customers order from tablets and purchase their food minutes later from cubicles, eliminating the demand for front-of-the-restaurant staff.
The suit claims that although technology to produce touchscreens and self-service food pick-up usable for blind and low-vision customers can be obtained, the restaurant chain has neglected to add these traits.
Disability Rights Advocates, a nonprofit organization, filed the suit claiming the fact that negligence is usually a civil rights violation.
The case is U.S. Civil Court, Southern District of recent York, Case no-02096.
Eatsa and Disability Rights Advocates wasn’t immediately readily available for comment.
