@talon "I don't have a screenreader or the motivation to test with one, just give me the expected HTML please."
@charlag @talon It's both funny and sad. Whenever Devin or someone else complains about inaccessibility, some fossbros show up to be like "Well yeah, but did you report it? I bet the developers would be happy to work with you if you did!"
And yeah. Some might be. Most though react like "Oh, so this doesn't work for you? OK, fix it yourself thx."
@charlag @Mayana I was a happy Gitea user, even with some of the issues that were in place from day one. I know how time consuming implementing something like accessibility can be, and I'll do my part to work around the more minor issues. This is now no longer possible. Yes, I know, if something's broken I should try to fix it myself, but as you can see from that issue it's not an easy task, especially if it's just going to be bulldozed over at some point in the future anyway, like that last little bit of accessibility it did have was. And this was known. They knew that this would break "some" accessibility, yet they went ahead with it either way. That doesn't motivate me to try to fix it very much if I'm honest.
@talon and please let me know if there are any problems with it. I know some of the developers and they are always keen on improving.
@talon I maintain a fork of stagit (https://codemadness.org/stagit.html) that renders the contents with landmark roles intead of random div's for my personal website. The fork can be found at https://git.escobar.life/stagit/README.html
Unfortunatelly, I haven't tested how accassible the HTML produced by this fork is (I'm quite new to accessibility and I don't know how to do so), and stagit is quite limited compared to Gitea.
The front-end is done with standard HTML tags and no compulsory JS. I also found a blog from the main dev in 2020 stating that it was fully complaint with WCAG: https://drewdevault.com/2020/02/15/Status-update-February-2020.html
