phpBB3 for blind users

Post by DoYouSpeakWak » Fri Feb 03, 2012 8:00 am

Hey everybody.

Iwe been asked to setup a forum for a blind group of users. They use reading machines, but the images are causing problems. The reply buttons in pms and topics is a problem.

Do any of you have experiences with these kinds of programs and phpbb3. if so, i would love to hear more.

Do you know if the reading machines are set up to use the title parameter?

Code: Select all

You may find http://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-9457 helpful, although that diff is rather old and may not apply in its entirety today.

Thx both of you. Monday ill get a copy of the software they use. Pretty pricy stuff so hopefully it will be able to take the code in account as well.
