if you're a programmer, you have two options:
- design for accessibility, or
- fuck right off
@io Does anyone have good resources on what to pay attention to specifically/best practices?
@foks if you've never used a screen reader, start there. get comfortable with the interface and navigation, then use it for a day. I think the most important thing as a programmer is to understand the mechanics of actually using a screen reader. so many blind or low-vision accessibility issues are caused by developers doing something mundane that totally fucks up the screenreader workflow
@io I'll give that a shot!
@foks iOS and Android have very good screen readers btw, and the touch interface simplifies a lot of navigation, so it might be easiest to start there
