usability for blinds


can you test your software with a screenreader if it is accessible for the blind ?

Re: Lulu-Ann: You've got to be kidding? Surely you don't expect every mobile dev to buy an expensive screen reader to test their app?

And java (especially on mobiles) are completely inaccessible anyway.

Dear author of OSMRaider: Please just ignore this.

Hi, I did not say "buy one". I said "can you test on one". Surely there are blind testers in the local community or in the OSM community. Guess why I linked to OSM for the blind. --Lulu-Ann 14:22, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Dear Lulu Im not sure if/how acessibility for blind is realised in mobile environment. Please remember, that this is a data logger app not a GPS navigation tool. So I guess the enduser has to be able to see his environment, doesn't he? --!i! 20:05, 30 September 2009 (UTC)
