I think still you can take help of sited person & book ticket. No doudt
still it makes visually challenged less independent. Hope Railway Minstry
will make some amends to said site & change it.

Dear list members,
I am sharing a barrier created by IRCTC. Now no visually challenged user can
book E Ticket. If you are going to book E Ticket of Indian Rail through
IRCTC site, you may not be able to do the same. Because at the time of
filling passengers detail, you will also have to type the character shown on
the screen, which is not possible for such challenging users in absence of
Anyone please advise to tackle with this problem. Otherwise, it is my humble
advise to everybody to write a suitable request to IRCTC authorities to make
the site accessable for such challenging users as per UN Convention please.
Thanks in anticipation.
