Here is the thing.
I’ve got a friend who works with the blind and partially sighted. Unaccessible websites drive her (rightfully) potty.
My web design skills are so poor that I’m not sure how accessible this website is for that sort of person, I’m not sure how screen readers and magnifiers cope with the design.
(I would change the design, but I haven’t a clue how to do so in order to make it more accessible).
So I had an idea, one that I don’t think anyone else is doing, and that is to podcast my reading of my posts.
Preferably at the same time I write them, but if I’m writing them at work, then as soon as I get home to where my (new) microphone is.
So if you have trouble reading my site, you can instead listen to me read it out.
So there will be two podcasts, a weekly one where I’ll talk about all different stuff, and this new one where you can get a vanilla audio version of my posts.
The feed for this is http://randomreality.libsyn.com/rss/Audiopost
Obviously I’ll have to fiddle around with it a bit, to get the right settings/file size/format, but hopefully it’ll be a step in the right direction towards making the internet and blogging a bit easier to use for the blind and partially sighted.
Let me know what you think.
