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 know from @balouqlc that #Pinafore has a better accessibility than the normal webclient so she should check that out.Accessibility seems to be quite good there.But as far as I know it's a bit problematic in the mobile apps.

@nipos @artsyhonker In case, this person uses an iphone, unfortunately amaroq is the only app that works somehow for us, who use a screenreader. I got no idea, what to use with #android.


@balouqlc @nipos Thank you! She uses both Android and iPhone, but Android more often. I think pinafore.social will probably be useful.

@artsyhonker @nipos I forwarded the androidissue to my forum of blind mastodon- and twitterusers. I hope, someone will have an idea which app is best to use with talkback.

@artsyhonker @nipos As I said, she is always wellcome to ask for help. I'm absolutely no nerd, but I think most of the stuff mastodon is concerned should be fine for her to handle.

@artsyhonker @nipos I just got the information from a blinde #android user, that #tusky is accessible for screenreader users. So If Your friend prefers to use android, it shouldn't be a problem.

@JoergSorge @social.bau-ha.us No, it's a forum for blind Twitter- and mastodon users on #Threema. I don't feel comfortable with #blindzeln, because they seem to be quite commercial.
