I have no problem with discord either the web site or the
application. Admittedly, it takes a bit of NVDA cursor
manipulation to get the chat info properly, but it does work.
Sure, it'd be nice to have the speech automatically read new text
as it comes in, but it's still usable as is.

I'm using discord reasonably enough. It does take some doing,
but for what I do it's usable. Granted what I do is not all that
much - I voice chat and text chat.
That being said, discord is *finally* taking accessibility
seriously. Whether or not it's too late remains to be seen but
recently, the mute and deafen buttons have finally gotten
labeled, for instance.
Run the discord canary windows builds over at
You'll get updates daily and, despite the slow progress of
accessibility improving, it very slowly is.
Hope that helps a little.

You have a point, poster #3. I've been trying to get the
developers to at least post accessibility updates,
challenges, and the like, but things are moving sooooo
slowly and, in some cases, not at all. It's a shame because
while Slack is starting to become very accessible, everybody
is moving onto Discord. Sigh. I love the idea of discord.
I'm limited to slack though. Despite what many believe, many
people still IM and email from a desktop.
