China Southern Airlines starts website for the blind

The China Southern Airlines has launched a website for the blind. Now users who want to fly the airline can visit and click on a bar at the top to open the function.

The site's colours can be simplified, text can be increased and the mouse cursor can be modified. One function also enables the text to be read aloud.
