Hi,
I heard that discord's  accessibility is being worked on a couple months ago or so, but today I returned to it and it's worse than before.
The entire window is covered with unlabeled buttons and graphics without alt text, and I can't really see things, I pressed enter on one of those clickable graphic blah blah blahs and my "friends", "direct messages" etc links reappeared. The annoying thing is, when I open up a chat and type something, I have no clue how to send it. Pressing enter inside the textbox doesn't seem to work, and the buttons near it are all unlabeled.
Am I missing something? Is there any configuration   I need to set to make it more accessible?
any instruction or help or directing me to somewhere that I can read on how to use it more comfortably is greatly appreciated.

Are you running the public beta builds?  I just looked at mine and it's fine, everything labeled and everything.

wierd, I just tried both versions, the stable one and the beta, same problems.
I'm using NVDA by the way, in case if it matters.

Hmm. Very strange. Everything seems to be in working order for me as well. Definitely some unlabeled buttons, but I don't think these buttons were ever labeled. Pressing enter is sending messages. The only buttons that should be visable on the message bar are the emoticon button below the message box, and the send files button above it.

Working fine here as well.

frustrating. I'm going to remove it completely and reinstall it. Are you guys using the stable version or the public beta?

Mhm. This is the main reason why I use the app. It's ten times more accessible, for messages at least. Haven't tried out the other stuff you can do on it yet, because up until a few months ago, my thoughts on what I could and couldn't do were different. And when they changed, my life got busyyy. Anyways, the app is great. On pc I don't know what I'm pressing half the time, and suddenly my message gets edited, and people go like, "Waaait how are you changing your messages???"
Unfortunately I can't explain how because I don't know myself. Loool

You wanna make a difference, get out and go begin it

Interesting. I'm using the desktop client without many problems. With server buttons being properly named, the buttons for mute/deafen being labelled and the button to enter your user settings being visible and labelled too, it's become a lot easier.

There are a few buttons still unlabelled, but I'd say it's becoming pretty decent. It's at least great to know they're finally starting looking into accessibility after so many years.
