Spotify is Accessible!!!

I’m so so so so so excited! I don’t know how I ran across it, but I was googling something last week and ran across some people talking about using Spotify with the screenreader I use. They were talking about how it worked on the Windows app version, but the web version still had some issues. So, I decided to just check it out: I had made an account a while back to check accessibility, and no go. But this time, I tried to use Spotify both on the Windows app version, and on the web version. Didn’t work on the web version, but the app works perfectly, Just like a web page! As a music person, I’m overjoyed that I can listen to all sorts of music on the platform that pretty much everyone uses! I have been listening to so many different things this weekend, and see why everyone loves to use Spotify so much 😀

 

I really hope the next upgrade to Spotify doesn’t break this accessibility. That happens a lot, and I’d be so crushed if it did because I’m loving using it. Since Google bought it recently, I really hope the accessibility stays: they’re pretty good at keeping things accessible to screenreaders, and NVDA is really good at keeping third party software accessible with its software, so please please please keep it accessible I loooove it XDD

 

Ok, I’m gonna stop gushing now. Back to Spotify to listen to more music!
