I've just used image descriptions in Google Chrome for the first time today. This may be old news for some, but it's seriously pretty cool.

Smiling doesn't necessarily mean you're happy. Sometimes it just means you're strong.

I'm putting together a blog post of tips and tricks that might be challenging to find for screen reader users. If folks have ones they think I should include, send them my way. Ex: While holding down CTRL in CTRL+TAB, press left/right arrow to move between documents and panels.

Everytime you insinuate that Trump is disabled or mentally ill, a disabled or mentally ill person loses a job opportunity. He’s racist and strategically inept. Stick with that.

Has anyone done comparison reviews or demos of all the accessible TV platforms out there? It would be interesting for example to hear how the screen reader on an LG TV works in comparison to the one on a Samsung, etc.

Simplest advice I've ever received: the div is your last resort. Is this your main content? There's a tag for that. Is it your header? That's got a tag, too. The div isn't bad; it just doesn't mean anything. That means you certainly don't need it for something clickable!

Great advice, but never be afraid to ask screen reader users what they really need rather than assuming. Context is awesome, too much context is not.

Don't forget visually impaired & blind people use social media too, thanks to screen readers within iPhone, Mac, and other platforms. Screen readers can't read your images. Please make your photography accessible to everyone by writing Image Descriptions. How to⬇️

For those interested in meditation and mindfulness apps, Insight Timer just got a big VoiceOver upgrade. The app has a wealth of meditations and courses.

I sure do hope they prioritize this particular bug for resolution before release. If they don’t, however, it certainly won’t be the first time a major accessibility bug has been allowed to reach final release status for a brand new major iOS version.

That’s why I made my simple statement about need for designed accessibility and the concept that if something is happening visually then we blind people deserve a non-visual version of that same information.

I don’t think any of us is saying it’s intentional. There does appear to be some disagreement on its importance or whether or not it needs to be fixed.

The answer here seems simple. If there’s a status indication on screen, then there needs to be an equivalent non-visual indication. Really, apple?

I wish Apple employees could see this thread. I agree with Greg, it’s very annoying. When VoiceOver is on in iOS 13 , the iPhone no longer beeps when holding in the home or power button to bring up Siri so VO user has to guess . :(
