My intentions were to do a review of online dating websites for blind and visually impaired persons, however a search for such sites revealed there are none, or none that I could find.
OK, If Disabled World, or another website, was to create a dating service for the blind what requirements would be needed? You can add to this list by using our form below. The form has a spoken captcha for the blind.
Criteria to Develop a Free Online Dating Website for Blind and Vision Impaired Users.
- The site would need to be mainly text only - with pictures kept to a minimum. Profile pictures could still be posted so that a sighted person could describe how a person looked to someone with a vision impairment.
- More descriptive fields would need to be added for items such as hair and eye color, clean shaven or bearded, height, body build etc. This would give a member a better idea of a person for those that can not see a profile photo.
- Any anti-spam captcha's would need to be able to "speak" the captcha letters or numbers.
- The website would need to be designed to be readable by a large number of different screen readers.
Please add to this list using our form below. If we get enough interest from people we may create a dating area on our site for the blind and visually impaired.
