Introducing product improvements for screen reader users
We are working on making Miro more accessible, and released the first significant bundle of product improvements for screen reader users.
Screen reader users don’t need to take any additional steps to activate the accessibility functionality – when you open a Miro board with your screen reader, you will hear a prompt to activate screen reader mode.
Now screen reader users can be invited to Miro boards. Sign up & sign in are screen-reader friendly, it is possible to navigate through the Miro dashboard to open the required board, and the main types of board content such as frames, sticky notes, and shapes can now be perceived with the help of the screen reader.
Please, note, that the flow described above works the best for:
Users invited to the existing team on the Enterprise Plan
Users on Team, Business, Consultant, Education or Enterprise Plan that are invited directly to the board as anonymous Guest Editors
All of the flows described above are currently only available on the desktop.
The current solution is read-only making it possible for users to access existing board content with the help of the screen reader, and does not allow creating or editing content on Miro boards yet.
We will continue working on making Miro more accessible, and are planning to support other possible setups in the future.
