Hey, I have a blind friend who might want to join us on the Fediverse. Does anyone have a guide to accessibility etc that might be more useful than me just sending her a link to an instance?

@artsyhonker I can say this: one of the power-users of the software my employer makes is blind. The best thing for accessibility has been them telling us when we've fucked it up.

@ben Yep. But I'm not a developer, and as a sighted person who doesn't even use a screenreader, I cannot easily tell my blind friend what software etc will work best for her to use Mastodon.

@artsyhonker I would recommend using the web UI as browsers generally work pretty well with accessibility software by default. You can install it as an app on most browsers.


@ben @artsyhonker

is a very simple web client that works well in lynx, and thus probably screen readers, but as a sighted person I can't say for sure.
