Accessibility: 2020 Digital accessibility quick scan report

From postmarketOS
Jump to navigation Jump to search

As part of the funding received in 2020 by NLnet through the NGI0 PET Fund, postmarketOS has gotten a Digital accessibility quick scan report from the Accessibility Foundation. It was decided to review the installation process with the on-device installer, and the following reboot into osk-sdl and the Phosh user interface, including our custom welcome app. The report is based on said installation and first run experience, as shown in Martijn's demo video, starting at 2:30.

The report gives a good idea of what one needs to look out for with accessibility in mind. In particular, we need to work towards making our stack usable with a screenreader and look into improving contrast in the UIs.
