Accessibility features in Dreamwidth
From Dreamwidth Notes
This contains a list of ways in which Dreamwidth is good at accessibility. This list is a retooled version of items in this post.
- There is alt text for user icons.
- Dreamwidth's Diversity Statement, which contains, among other things, this line: "We think accessibility for people with disabilities is a priority, not an afterthought."
- There is an "Other" option in the gender field.
- The layout of HTML in comment threads is semantic, which makes them easier to navigate with a screen reader and other accessibility software.
- Further, the ordering of the userpic/subject on the page is more logical.
- The navigation bar contains links for both the
style=mineoptions, making them must easier to use.
- Readers have more control over their viewing experience. For example, if they don't want the navigation bar displayed, then they can turn it off globally.
- The Manage Tags page is completely accessible.
