@austinseraphin I noticed most "empty" buttons have an aria-label attribute with the button name. Is that not enough? Or do they also need a span with sr-only-class in it?
I recently set up a mastodon dev environment and can implement small changes (finding my way around in the code base). Would be happy to fix a few accessibility things.
@lilo I've had a good experience on the web site, though a friend said she had some issues so I'll find out what and get back to you. So far all of the buttons have read fine for me. Can you give me a specific example to test?
@austinseraphin One of my blind followers had trouble with the follow/unfollow button and he had difficulties to find the search results (NVDA with a google chrome based browser). Later he switched to firefox where it seemed to work.
