I know and understand this is a Beta, but… (maybe better to solve these things sooner than later).
I work with persons with disabilities (I’m one myself) and, out of curiosity, I tested the app with a screen reader. The result was… well…
There are many problems and barriers that persons with visual disabilities may have to face if they want to use Couchers app. I’m not talking only about blind persons, but also persons with other visual limitations.
I can’t make a whole list of all the problems, but just to say some: the login was a little nightmare, there is no way to navigate menus in messages area not using the mouse (couldn’t find a way to move from “chats” to “hosting” or “surfing”), same with other similar menus around the site, lack of alt texts in images that may explain the content if you can’t see them, very low contrast in many places of the site (letter in a very light grey over a white background)…
It is difficult to find “perfect” accessible websites, usually the design is more valued than the accessibility (pity, but true)… and asking for a “perfect” app may be utopian but… how about “usable”?
I’m not an expert, I can only point to the few problems I find. An expert to give some advise would be great, but, in the meantime, there are many free manuals on the web to learn the “basics” for programming an accessible website
