Re: Need your comments was: Packackages.d.o - New Download Table on Package Pages
Hi. I'm a blind user who uses a screen reader with speech output in a
text console. My default browser is lynx. As far as I know, lynx
doesn't support CSS. There is work to make browsers like Mozilla
accessible, but it isn't usable yet. Elinks is finally adding CSS
support, but it's rendering of tables makes it confusing for screen
readers with speech. I believe emacspeak users might have a browser
that supports CSS, but I'm not an emacs user. At least for now, the
most accessible page is one that works well in lynx.
Hope this helps.
