OK, we all know what Zwift is, and all the benefits the platform offers cyclists, so I’m not going to list them all here.
What Zwift is missing, is accessibility for visually impaired cyclists that might want to use the software and it is about ■■■ damn time they are held accountable for this.
I myself, am a visually impaired triathlete and would absolutely love the opportunity to lock horns on Zwift, but I can not, due to the in-accessibility of the program.
Zwift, are very aware of their lack of accessibility, but simply do not care enough to address the problem.
With todays’ technology, it would not be much of a stretch to add voiceover capability to Zwift, making it possible for people like myself to enjoy what the platform has to offer.
Zwift have been approached on multiple occasions by other visually impaired athletes looking for help, and have simply brushed them off, which is why I am not planning on taking the same approach with them.
I have already started looking into the possibility of bringing legal action against the company, and am writing this to the community to gather support, as the more people that recognize the need for change, the more likely Zwift are to take notice if legally prompted to do so.
Thoughts? Opinions? I will leave this here for now.
