First of all, I’m really sorry for your inconvenience with SonarQube. Unfortunately, SonarQube was not designed in an inclusive way, and we have a lot of accessibility debt that we are aware of.
For 2019, the User Experience team at SonarSource committed to make our software more accessible to visually impaired users. We will start by addressing the needs of partially sighted people, like colorblind users, by enhancing everything relating to contrasts, color accessibility, and typography accessibility.
Then, our next challenge might be to make SonarQube accessible to blind users. We are eager to make it possible to use assistive technology like screen readers. We currently acknowledge that our markup architecture is not ready for this, and we sincerely apologize for it. We will probably need to do research and trainings in the future to become really good at handling this.
In the meantime, if you know of good resources, or quick wins that our front-end team can implement that would make your life easier, I encourage you to share it with us.
We consider having blind community members to be a huge plus to help us in this journey. I will follow-up with you once we get started on this topic, and I hope we can keep in touch for the future developments of an accessible SonarQube.
Thanks a lot for your feedback
