Abstract:Social media reports of accessibility problems can document accessibility issues encountered in situ. We analyzed 200 posts about discussions around accessibility and 166 posts that describe accessibility problems from Twitter and Instagram. Our findings show that people use existing platforms to have robust conversations to identify and communicate accessibility problems. We discuss the practical implications of using human work to facilitate remote accessibility evaluation combining real-life scenarios and design an experiment to investigate the feasibility of crowdsourcing to identify accessibility issues remotely.
