Blind people can not listen to SIRIUS

Wednesday, June 14, 2006

As of yesterday, SIRIUS.com added a new security feature to the online SIRIUS player. This requires the user to enter username, password, and “autocaptcha”

This is when you have to enter the letters and numbers shown in an image that changes every time the page is loaded.

GSI got an email from a blind person bringing this issue to our attention.

We are told this change to the online player is to get ready for Howard online.

Other companies like Google owned pages have added an audio version of this security measure that plays a sound clip that reads off the letters and numbers in the image.

Is there any reason as to why all channels aren't available online? For example, CNBC ch. 129 isn't available.

SIRIUS would have to pay for the rights to run that content online. They buy CNBC, FOX, etc from the source. Shows like Martha, Jay Thomas, Howard, and out Q are SIRIUS owned content..
