The U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal from Domino’s Pizza Inc., leaving the company to face a lawsuit by a blind man who says its website and mobile-phone app don’t comply with a federal disabilities law.

Robles says he uses the popular “Job Access With Speech” software, known as JAWS, to read web pages. That software works only if graphics and hyperlinks have “alt-text,” a description of the image that appears when a cursor floats over it or the screen-reading software detects it.
