When the prompt word (code) was given for this week's Six Sentence Story, it didn't take me long to come up with a topic. As a host of a blog hop (the Ten Things of Thankful), I have been frustrated trying to find a link-up code service that is truly accessible to those who use screen readers. The company I use used to work with screen readers, but they have "improved" their service, much to my chagrin, and the frustration of some bloggers. If any of you know of a blog link-up service that is accessible, please let me know! Thanks!

There once was a service called Inlinkz
Once useful, but now it stinks.
The link-up code, I find
Is unfriendly to the blind.
And Inlinkz doesn't care, methinks.
(A sad, but true tale.)
How i hate companies that "improve" their products into uselessness.ReplyDelete
I don't think they thought through the implications of the "improvements" very well. I don't know what is required to make the code accessible, but I do know that it somehow was before the changes and now is not.Delete
I feel your frustration for finding another service! Having said that I wasn't aware of the issues with "readers". Perhaps someone reading your Six will have information on another service.ReplyDelete
Glad you linked up :)
very clever Six, yo
* a compliment both on the medium and the message...
Oh the frustration! Hope someone makes improved improvements!ReplyDelete
I like where the prompt led you.ReplyDelete
Agree completely! New and improved my foot! I will never forgive Kraft for ruining their boxed mac and cheese! TASTS LIKE THE BOX NOW!!!!!ReplyDelete
Good six. You defined the frustration in all of us.
Perfect Six and message!ReplyDelete
Brilliant way of voicing your dismay! Perhaps a service that caters to the blind community could help you find a screen reader friendly linking tool?ReplyDelete
