Recently; I was waiting for Draft2Digital to implement more accessible controls that are easy to use. However; the vendor selector has been changed so far, and the publishing wizard has been changed, and the edit boxes are accessible. But the “Rights Confirmation” section is NOT accessible for the blind. This section is really important for the blind person to operate because, if the section is NOT accessible… bad things will occur. Since I don’t have any screenshots to show you what’s exactly happening.
Some people usually use Chromebooks to develop websites, but they’re limited to a Chrome browser,–that’s how Chrome OS gots its name. If you had an Android phone, you can down load a secondary browser to compare between websites. This is useful if you wanted to check if your ads are functioning correctly, or study the layout of your website with a browser that can render your website’s layout.
I experimented on a screen-reader on my Android phone, TalkBack. I logged into my Draft2Digital account to navigate around the interface, such as “Advanced Settings” and varify if these controls are accessible. But I discovered something that is NOT right! Like Chromevox, this screen-reader can’t locate checkboxes because, these elements on Draft2Digital’s website itself isn’t designed to be screen-reader accessible.
Okay… I experimented with writing and editing a post on my website. I managed to reach up to 5700 words on my post via WordPress,–editing stories. This is the another issue what Chromevox developers didn’t say to us. You thought Chromevox is getting better… but this is a sign of false-advertising.
Recently… Chitika has discontinued using PayPal, and replaced it with Payoneer. This payment platform isn’t as accessible as PayPal. Since Chitika has some problems with PayPal, maybe they have to swap platforms to make it easier for people to get paid faster. However; that didn’t solve the problem for blind webmasters like me! That is the another form of discrimination against the blind webmasters who rely on shared-hosting plans. In common, most websites written by blind webmasters are text-based. There’s no images, and no video content. Well, they may have audio content,–if available.
