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.

Some explained their preference in the replies: Some prefer to listen to long texts instead of reading them, finding it less taxing. One person likes to learn about the contents of an image before deciding whether to look at it.
