I'd like to put together a list of all the stuff in Dreamwidth that's aimed at making us more accessible - so everything from "We have a diversity statement" to "Alt text for user icons" to "comment threads easier to navigate because of semantic HTML" to (eventually) "guides available to teach users to use browser accessibility functions themselves".

I don't think there's a list in one place of all the improvements that have been made which relate in some way to accessibility for any group.

Ones I can think of:

- Alt text for user icons
- Diversity Statement (which goes with "our volunteers care about accessibility")
- "Other" option in gender field
- Layout of HTML in comment threads is semantic now, which makes them easier to navigate with a screen reader and some other accessibility software..
- We've made the format=light and style=mine options more widely known and easier to use by putting them on the navbar.
- Readers have more control over their viewing experience - eg if they don't want the navbar then they can turn it off globally.

What other improvements have people noticed in accessibility while reading and using Dreamwidth?
