Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great. - Comte de Bussy-Rabutin

To members of the blind community interested in web accessibility:
We are writing about the Structured Negotiations settlement reached between CVS and the American Council of the Blind, the American Foundation for the Blind, and the California Council of the Blind. Under the agreement, cvs.com should now meet the standards of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, Level AA. Because of the timing of the CVS settlement, CVS has the choice to comply with either WCAG 1.0 or WCAG 2.0
We need feedback from the community to help us make sure the agreement is being well implemented. (Email and phone to send feedback at the end of this email.) Here's how you can help:
(1) Spend some time on www.cvs.com and let us know what you think. We are interested in both positive feedback and areas where you think CVS could make the site more accessible.
(2) If you have a CVS prescription, try using the on-line tools for ordering and refilling prescriptions and let us know what you think.
(3) Register with the site.
(4) Try buying something on www.CVS.com
(5) Let us know what you think about other sites owned by CVS. CVS has agreed to meet with us about the accessibility of these sites, and we need your feedback for that meeting. The other sites are: www.caremark.com and www.cvscaremark.com
Finally, because of the strong relationship with CVS that has been developed as a result of the Structured Negotiations process, we are able to talk with the company about other issues in CVS stores affecting the blind and visually impaired community. (The agreement with them, for example, also covers tactile point of sale devices in CVS stores across the country.) If you have experienced any issues at CVS that you would like to bring to our attention, please don't hesitate to contact us as follows:
By email at LF at LFLegal.com
toll-free to Linda's office at 1-800-822-5000
Thanks for helping us monitor and enforce ACB, AFB and CCB's settlement agreement with CVS. You can read the full agreement at: http://lflegal.com/2009/07/cvs-agreement/ . You can read the press release about the settlement at: http://lflegal.com/2009/07/cvs-press/
