Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox

more options

Hello Lovely Firefox Volunteers,

I hope this email finds you well. I am a long-time user and fan of Firefox, and other open source projects. Firefox is a fantastic internet browser!

Having said that, I was shocked and dismayed at what I encountered today. I was doing some tests for screen-reader usability on a website, and I came across the following:

Image 1 (attached): Advertisement of Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox

Image 2 (attached): No Screen-Reader Add-Ons for Firefox are Available

The Firefox team is advertising screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, which don't seem to exist. I don't think the recommendation here should be: take down the advertisement for the Firefox native screen-reader add-ons/link to them, these seem to be really important for accessibility, and the Firefox team seems to acknowledge this. :)

There is some other missing piece - maybe there are Screen-reader add-ons for Firefox, and they aren't being linked to? Maybe the wrong tag is being used? (The auto tag that is used in the link is "screen reader"). Maybe there aren't any, and this is an area that needs some additional attention?

Anyway, I just thought I should bring this to your attention as making our internet accessible to people living with blindness and loss of sight is extremely important.

Sincerely, Katie

Okay, so that is this article: Accessibility features in Firefox - Make Firefox and web content work for all users.

And the link goes to: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/tag/screen%20reader

It looks like that link is limited to a specific tag, and that might be an obsolete way to build the search link. Maybe this one would be better:

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/search/?q=screen%20reader&type=extension

If you like, you can make the edit. In the right column of the article, you'll find an Editing Tools section with an "Edit Article" link. On the other hand, it might not be worth learning the unusual syntax just for one link so I'll go ahead and suggest the change right now.
