How do I get help to better use FamilySearch with a screen reader for the visually impaired/
I truly appreciate Family Search, and I also understand it's relevance to the LDS mission regarding genealogy. I want to be helpful but your site is very difficult to use for those of us who are visually impaired (I am a legally blind disabled veteran). Many elements on the Family Search site are not accessible to those of us who use screen readers. So, I was unable to add the information to my family tree. I hope Family Search will become more user accessible to those of us who are visually impaired. Best wishes.
This is passed on by me from a Feedback to FamilySearch. How can this person get help? I did not know the answer.
