@balouqlc I guess the accessibility problems don't necessarily stop at only blind people. I get annoyed when the #Riot dev team gets all on the defensive when confronted with blatant design failures in their all-new shiny new reskin.

I am not blind nor vision impaired.

@balouqlc I accidentally launched Riot for Android with TalkBack on while doing development and it's not nice at all. To scroll through each message you have to scroll unhelpful "profile picture" and invisible element (which is focused message element if I understand correctly)
