I generally find that constant contact e-mails are more accessible than most of the other services. I receive several messages a week with labeled graphics from Constant Contact that have the graphics labeled.

However each of the social network buttons seem to appear twice once unlabeled immediately followed by a labeled one. I have mostly ignored this right now, but would be glad to investigate some with a sighted person if you need more feedback. Whatever you do do not use the service Baja Fresh uses. It is totally unusable by the blind.

Thanks,

Jonathan
