From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki


I just read about Amara for subtitling videos; is there something we could do to encourage Amara usage? Sharihareswara (WMF) (talk) 15:56, 18 July 2013 (UTC)Reply

Wikipedia as an accessibility tool[edit]

User:Haxpett showed me the site, which can be used as a tool to help translate sign language. They have an app available, and so on. This makes me think that there might already be straightforward ways wikimedia projects can be harnessed, which would help make... the world more accessible. I'm not sure it fits into your proposal, but what I'm imagining is that we can focus not only on ways to make WP more *usable*, but also on ways to make it more *useful*.

Wikipedia article and talk page interface[edit]

Both for those with limited eyesight and those working on small screens, a redesign of the tab system at the top of each article, so that it would work better at high zoom levels, would be worth the effort. Also, for those using the new 16:9 screen format, an option to have the tabs and other information collapsible or shown at the side, etc., would help readers. For example, while creating this post at my comfortable zoom level I can only type five lines of text before scrolling begins. I am not sure if this falls under the topic above or not.
