Getting a COVID-19 vaccine has been difficult for many in Florida. But the visually impaired have several additional hurdles that sighted people don’t.
Maggie Saldana of Naples is legally blind. She calls the process to get a vaccine appointment online “long and hopeless.”
“Because I am legally blind, the computer is not my friend,” Saldana said.
Saldana said that the Publix website is not compatible with the screen reader she uses to make websites accessible.
Like many people, she recruited family members to help.
