Disabled access tickets to many events can only be purchased via the phone.

It is very frustrating that accessible tickets for many venues have to be purchased via the phone. I understand that booking via the phone may work better for some people but from talking to others I learnt that there are various disabilities and needs that booking via the phone doesn’t accommodate for. 

For example as a person with a speech impairment, purchasing tickets via the phone is rather inaccessible to me. But it's not just my speech impairment that is the difficulty, I and many other disabled people have a smaller pot of energy compared to non-disabled people. So having to spend 3 hours on the phone is very demanding on energy levels for those who are chronically ill and is quite simply an occupational injustice when other tickets can be bought online at the click of a button. It doesn’t stop there what about the Deaf and hearing impaired community? 

After making a complaint about this for the Ed Sheeran tickets that went on sale on 25/09/2021 it was said that accessible tickets can now be purchased via email for the particular venue I complained about. This is a step forward. But, how is this fair? Most venues take days if not weeks to respond to emails. This needs to be equal so that disabled people are not put at a disadvantage.

I ask you to sign and share this petition to change this ableist system and make accessible tickets accessible as currently purchasing an accessible ticket is rather inaccessible.
