Re: Hamburger Menus and Such

I looked at Grammarly awhile ago and it is still inaccessible. Basically what it does is it analysis the text you type anywhere, and it draws an underline to indicate spelling or grammar errors etc - but not in any way which can be detected by a screen reader. There is a standalone editor, but last I looked it wasn't accessible at all.
ProWritingAid is more accessible. They used to have a screen reader friendly editor separate from the main one, but they seem to have ditched that and now made the main one more accessible - though not quite as easy to get around as it could be.
The hamburger menu is accessible, from memory it just identifies itself as "menu". ProWritingAid offers very advanced and complex editing advise, so it depends on exactly what your needs are as to whether it is suitable. It offers analysis on repeated phrases, structure, length, readability, cliches, alliteration and much more.
Another one I've tried is Hemingway editor, and while I love the interface visually, and that it highlights things like complex sentences, adverbs and words which could be simpler, and also gives a readability score / grade..... Most of its highlighting is also inaccessible. You can set NVDA to report colours and that works when reading text in it, but it would be great if it was a little friendlier. It also does NOT offer spell check, so you'll want to run your text through a spell checker elsewhere if you do use this tool. Hemingway comes as a web app: https://hemingwayapp.com/ Or a desktop app for $20: https://hemingwayapp.com/desktop.html
The spelling and grammar check in Word is probably the easiest to use, and has definitely improved over time, although it doesn't offer as much functionality for detailed grammatical analysis as the other tools around.
