Does anyone here rely on screen readers or or something? How does your tool recognise ? Is the usage of many tags rather annoying for you?

@martin i don't use them, but i think "spaming" hastags is annoying for a "normal" reader too? Dunno why someone need to put like 10 hastags in a 30 word post.

@martin @marco Marco, maybe you can help answer that question? I also wouldn't mind knowing how hashtags are affecting screen readers.

I use the Orca screen reader and GNUSocial. hashtags do not present any special problem; they are read as such, and are presented as links. Browser is the latest firefox. Orca has descriptions for common imojis; too many of these can slow down reading.

Aha, you're right! Emojis are problematic as well!
