From Twitter, about Wordle score postings: no one listened to screen reader users about the "red flag" tweets, so now we have to listen to Wordle tweets, which are a bunch of "black star black star black star" nonsense.

@devinprater I'm glad that the culture on Mastodon is better, everyone I've individually mentioned "hey this isn't good for screenreaders can you put it behind a CW" has done so and been nice about it. And there are multiple ways of generating acceasible versions that I've seen different people use here too.

@bright_helpings
The accessible wordle score generator I've come across is wa11y.co/

My share button on Wordle stopped working before I got to try it out, but if it starts working again, is that a good one to use?

@devinprater
Here's an example from yesterday's Wordle (though I had to type the emoji version myself to input into wa11y.co, since my Wordle share button still isn't working):

Line 1: 4th correct but in the wrong place.
Line 2: 4th perfect, but 3rd and 5th in the wrong place.
Line 3: Won!

@devinprater
Oh, good. I don't share my score publicly very often, but I'll keep this in mind if I want to in future.

Incidentally, is Wordle itself powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ usable in an eyes-free way? There's no reason it couldn't be made accessible; it could even be played in a text console, if someone wrote a command-line version.
@bright_helpings

@TMakarios @bright_helpings Nope. The interface is almost accessible, but I can't figure out how to tell if what I got is right or not, and no matter how many times I press "enter", it doesn't change anything, so can't check the score.

@devinprater
I came across this recently: minorninth.github.io/accessibl

Do those instructions work for you to make Wordle playable in an eyes-free way?
