Making the app accessible

Hi @anon14140932, thanks for bringing up this important topic.

It has been in my mind at times; unfortunately the technology we are using does not make it super easy to make the site accessible, but it is important and we need to figure something out for that in the long term.

Would you be interested in helping us with this? I’ve tried using a screen reader in the past; but it really requires someone who uses one regularly to really know how the site should be laid out for that?

I am not sure what resources we have to work on this right now, but I’m sure there are easy gains to be made with a little bit of work.

That’s not entirely true! We should be able to make it accessible.

We have been putting effort into using aria labels etc. Recently I have been checking the accessibility tree here and there when I’m making changes. I wonder if the parts where it are not good are the ones we did earliest when we were being quite lax? Messaging and login are certainly amongst the first things we did.
