Let me present you a small experimental project: “Kaldra” is a minimalistic blogging platform, adapted to screen readers. So, blind people can use it completely independently.
On kaldra.ge website you can:
• Create your own blog, which will be located at url: <selected name>.kaldra.ge
• Publish articles
• View stats about your blog and articles
• Use comments and messaging
• Gather favourite blogs
• Search articles
In videos you can see how blind people use computer and internet; Also, listen to Georgian speech synthesizer; And I speak about those minimal technical details, which could bring largest impact for accessibility, if implemented.
“Kaldra” already passed initial testing phase and now it awaits bloggers 🙂 If you know someone, who uses a screen reader himself or would like to address to Georgian blind readers, please, share this information to them.
I would gladly receive feedback and will try to improve the platform. What I was aiming, was to build a very minimalistic system with minimal steps for the user and convenient navigation.
