choice but to share their PINs with strangers," explained Melanie Brunson, executive director of the American Council of the Blind. "Today's announcement, and the collaboration that led to it, demonstrates CVS/pharmacy's ongoing commitment to its blind and visually impaired customers."

Web Site Access

The initiative includes CVS/pharmacy's commitment to ensure that its online pharmacy, www.cvs.com, is accessible to persons with a wide range of disabilities, including blind computer users who use a screen reader or magnification technology on their computers and those who rely on a keyboard instead of a mouse. CVS.com will implement these enhancements by the end of 2009.

"An accessible web site is crucial if people with vision loss are to obtain goods, services and information on an equal footing," said Paul Schroeder, vice president, programs and policy group of the American Foundation for the Blind. "We appreciate CVS/pharmacy's commitment to ensure that CVS.com is usable by the broadest range of online consumers, including those who have disabilities."
