Visual-impairment issues and repl.it
JohnsonTheGreat (32)

I like using repl.it and I like having my students use it. However, I worry that some students with visual impairments might struggle to read comments in code or instructions, depending on the theme.

Do any of you struggle reading code? Or struggle reading comments from instructors or in lessons? Or am I just making issues where there are none?

I think we overlook things like this - what kind of supports would your visually impaired students need to make Repl.it more usable for them?

@timmy_i_chen I think they would need a button command..that will make the text read aloud in a fe/male voice.....
