Re: Please help with accessibility of accessibility :)
a HUGE thank you to everyone working on accessibility improvements.
Your work is greatly appreciated.
am partially sighted. I can use a computer screen fine so long as
the fonts are big enough. I don't need a screen magnifier, just no
tiny fonts. This is easier said than done!
No matter how many things
I tweak in Debian, Gnome and certain applications keep presenting me
with tiny fonts. Menus and pop-up messages are typical, sometimes
complete application interfaces. An important aspect of testing,
therefore, is to check all fonts. Anything smaller than the set size
will probably be unreadable.
It is possible to see these tiny fonts
by using a screen magnifier. However, this is frustrating as it a cumbersome interface and would
be unnecessary for me, and many others, if only the tiny fonts were
A few examples: The Gnome top bar (it expands a little by
setting "large fonts", but not enough to be comfortably readable. It seems impervious
to all other settings); Mega Sync pop-ups (really tiny!); Cryptomator
(the entire app is unusable on Debian Gnome). I can provide more examples, if it helps. I
realise there may be some workarounds for the examples I have given
(happy to hear about them!) but the things is, really, I want to tell
my operating system that I am disabled and need large fonts and that
should be it. It sould not keep presenting me with fonts that are a
fraction of the size I have set.
Thanks again for you work! I hope this is helpful.
