Dear accessibility practitioners, please don’t use @medium as your primary publishing platform. Syndicate there if you must, but Medium doesn’t support alt text for images, and has given no indication that it plans to. Its last comment on the subject of alt text was made several years ago and amounts to “Sorry not sorry”. So, avoid Medium as your primary publishing platform, and go with a website of your own that you can control instead. Then, syndicate to Medium.
Sign up page did not work with screen readers. Such an important site needs and accessibility policy. And soon!
I’m not holding my breath with regard to any kind of accessibility policy, let alone enforcement of that policy.
Isn’t anyone taking them to court? Just a thought.
