Postman Client Accessibility

Hi, I wanted to follow up with an issue that was opened on the Postman Github support page about the lack of accessibility for the blind and visually impaired who use screen readers. The issue in question is here:

https://github.com/postmanlabs/postman-app-support/issues/3121

This issue has not been addressed at all, and there are a tun of visually impaired developers, myself included, who are constantly reminded that Postman is not accessible to screen readers. Hopefully one of the developers of Postman is on this form and can contribute toward this discussion. I and so many other blind individuals would love to see some progress made on making Postman more accessible.

If it is a question of how, any number of us, myself included, would be more than willing to assist in improving the user interface to make it more accessible to people with vission impairments. As the most popular tool for testing RESTFul APIs, it is very frustrating to have to look else where for other solutions than the tool that everyone else uses.

Thanks,

Timothy Breitenfeldt

Hi Timothy,

Thank you, sincerely, for bringing this up. We’re starting an internal conversation about how to best address accessibility at this time–I know it is important to me and others at Postman.

Best,
Hannah

Hi Timothy,

thanks for sharing your struggle with us. It is hard to imagine how frustrating this can be.

I think it is important to have your voice heard, so what I encourage you to do is to bring more people to the issues you have referenced (by commenting, sharing ideas, giving thumbs-up).

Maybe the Postman team is not aware of how many people are impacted by this. I am sure that @hannah.neil will help get more awareness inside Postman.
