Are you using a screen reader to access Mastodon?
These results are obviously not representative of the complete user bases of these platforms, but I still find them interesting. About 2% of the users taking part in the poll use a screen reader to access Mastodon.
Of those who answered the follow-up question, only two thirds use a screen reader because they are dependent on it because of some kind of impairment or disability. The rest relies on screen readers out of personal preference.
@illdfn If there are long texts, i like someone reading that text to me. There are some instances which regularly have more than 1000 characters in posts.
@illdfn Sometimes I will just lie back and use a screenreader, it's much less stress on my back and sometimes using my eyes is annoying.
However I don't do this often anymore because TalkBack is so annoying
@illdfn Not sure what the intention of this question is. So I am going to tell you anyways... :D that I really like picture descriptions because it means i can read the content and do not have to decipher odd visual jokes etc or look at nsfw/nsfl stuff i don't wanna see.
