@fdroidorg Note, when you use the Unicode math characters to create "italic" text, it will not be readable to screen readers, as they do not know it's regular text. Your "italic" portion in the post above is read by VoiceOver as "dot h h h".

I've written a blog post about this with some info: blog.nytsoi.net/2019/12/12/alt

@nicd @fdroidorg when that arguments is brought up I always thinks that screen readers should step up their game πŸ˜”

@pitbuster @fdroidorg It's a problem for screen readers because those are special characters for math and other similar uses. There is no correct way to read them out of their assigned use case.

@nicd @pitbuster We of course apologize to everyone who wasn't able to read previous quote. We'll try to refrain from creative use of unicode from now on.

@pitbuster It's not an argument, it's a fact. Screenreaders handle such text badly. Removing it would take nothing from the visual experience here; the quote could have been rendered in plain text.

Charitably, perhaps you're trying to optimize responsibility for a solution and you might be right but doing so implies it's not worth anyone doing anything until that solely responsible software maker does. We all can play a part here. @nicd @fdroidorg
