As far as I know, that applies only to government sites, and even there
there are some exemptions.

And there was a court ruling that Southwest Airlines "does not have to

Just the same, there's no good reason why to make life difficult for
your visually impaired customers; it's just bad business and it's not
harder to do it right.
