I've tried to find the post where this was announced, but it's evading me. Can someone give me a link?

This is probably the main post, though there were brief mentions before this: Worst Case Scenario (post 10)

Hi saabie,

One of the people playing (and occasionally playtesting) my ADRIFT games is a Russian lady who is blind, she has told me that the current ADRIFT Runner is incompatible with screen readers. Do you know if your new Runner will work with screen readers?

No idea. I don't know anything about screen readers or how they work.
It may be possible for me to send text directly to the screen reader if it has a standard interface, or use the Microsoft speech API.

Hi saabie,

The lady uses a free screenreader called NVDA, it can be downloaded at: https://www.nvaccess.org/ She said that someone made an add-on for NVDA called IFInterpreters which improves accessibility for some programs.

Maybe you could try it with your Runner. I think it is very important to provide accessibility for blind and partially-sighted people.
