Looking for people who regularly use screen readers to browse the web.

A dev version of #keyoxide [1] currently has 100% #accessibility score by #lighthouse [2] and 0 errors according to WAVE [3] but still I'd hope to receive some real-world feedback and ensure what I develop can truly be used by all.

Boosts appreciated.

@keyoxide Awesome to see more people paying attention to this! ☺️ I had a look at the 2 sites, and 2 things stood out. The minor one is that the top navigation menu really doesn't need to be so verbose, just saying "About" instead of "Go to the about page" is totally fine, like the links in the footer do even now.
The more serious issue is, on the first page, the group radio buttons to set the protocol are correctly spoken as a "radio group", but the actual buttons themself are just announced as text, without the screen reader saying it's a radio button and more importantly whether it's checked or not. I checked this both in Safari and Brave on a Mac and Chrome with NVDA on Windows.

@pitermach Thanks a bunch for the feedback!

- I'll fix nav (shorter labels)
- Ow, that is interesting because they are actually inpup[type=radio] elements. So I should fix that with a role=radio maybe? I'll try this later this evening

@keyoxide No problem, and re those radio buttons that should work I would think if it's just a normal radio input... and clearly the testing tools think so too :)
CC @marcozehe if you have some time maybe you could take a look? Perhaps you might see something obvious with your experience. Either that or we just found a bug of some kind


@pitermach This is soo nice! I'm following @keyoxide for a few months already. Recently I've created my profile at keyoxide.org/8df9b61a17bf88354842ecc5144312f3eb650a2d @marcozehe will have clearer suggestions but I can say that you don't need aria-label for controls that already have text content inside e.g. links in the navigation at the top.
