My co-worker and I were developing a website for a client that wanted people who were blind to be able to use it. The scenario was that they use screen readers to navigate the site. We were going through some bugs they found.
Client: So one thing we noticed is that when the screen reader highlights the “close” button, it obscures it. We think people using screen readers will find this inconvenient.
Me: …So you’re saying that people who use screen readers won’t be able to see the close button.
Me: And, just to clarify, we are assuming that people who are using the screen readers are blind?
Me: I don’t think blind people will have an issue with not being able to seen something on the screen.
My co-worker muted the phone and we started laughing.
