[sword-devel] SwordReader Feature List

Are there people with no vision that use Windows Mobile? The blind people
that I know do not. Any cell phones they use are simple ones. The screen
readers would also have problems directing them where to tap the touch

In my opinion, we should simply change the color between OT and NT for now.
A blind person using something to direct them to the book is going to be in
the same position as the color blind person. They will need to know where
the split is themselves.

The more significant issue is with people who have no vision.   Screen
readers don't state the colour of the text.

Which gets back to the issue of an a11y way to differentiate between
the OT, NT, and Deuterocanonical material.
