Access requests

I'm having a med reaction that's left me exhausted but jittery and sleepless, so I might as well do something productive with the time. It's been a very long time since I asked people for feature or bug requests for accessibility issues.

What do you wish, in a perfect world, dreamwidth would fix or implement? Note that I'm more clueless about cognitive accessibility, magnification, and visual processing, so I especially welcome clarifications on places we fail on those. No request too large or small, as long as it obeys the laws of thermodynamics.

I would love a fix for the bug that causes tiny text on Android devices - it's already logged on Github.

I actually have 2 requests: one of them is probably a minor one to fix. But I'll start with the other one. I think this was discussed awhile back, but I wish that social-networking links were implemented. I have tried the email sharing option with very good results, and it seems to me that Twitter and Facebook as well as the other social networks could easily be implemented. Thoughts? The accessibility fix I'd like to suggest has to do with the mobile site. Even when logged in on that side, the button says "Log in" when it would make more sense to say "Log out." But other than those 2 things, I've had absolutely no trouble with Dw.

Sorry for the late reply; I was busy preparing for a meeting this morning and then my next-door neighbors hosted a birthday party for their daughter. But regarding the accessibility bug I mentioned in my previous reply, it happens in Safari and Google Chrome with both Chromevox and VoiceOver. This is on Mac OS X. I'm referring to where it says "Log in" after my username.

My biggest accessibility need right now is an iOS app, with a streamlined interface specifically designed for mobile use.

Please! I use my phone and iPad much more than a computer these days because of my arthritis. It would allow me to use Dreamwidth much much more.

Thank you. We would like that, too. Especially since we are in school and don't have much comp access while there, even if we bring a laptop. )A way to sneak posts in about the things we're excited about... ;p)

Font sizes when typing replies are very small compared to the rest of the page.

For example, this is what I see when I click a post link and reply here:

And here's what I see if I click the "reply" link from the journal instead (note style difference, which puzzles me too but is not the current question):

Would it be possible to make the size of text in the comment textbox be the same as the size of the text in the post? That way, whatever zoom lets me read a post also works when replying.

I couldn't figure out how to make the images show up directly; using img tags didn't work, maybe because imgur URLs don't have file extensions. Dunno, haven't used imgur much before.
