Hello all


My name is David and I am currently active on a football management game
(OSM) owned by Gamebasics based in the Netherlands. 


Recently, the company removed the mobile version without implementing
changes to the other platforms enabling screen reader users like myself to
continue independently. I was offered a refund on my remaining tickets and
advised that if accepted, the issue of accessibility could no longer be
discussed as I have previously proposed changes to the full site. The
company also advised that changes to their app would be given consideration
to making it compatible with Apple's Voice Over. However, no time frame was


I would like to add that a former moderator was extremely helpful when he
wrote a formations guide to help people with a visual impairment to
understand how the formations are organised and has since been included in
the osm Guide in the Help forum albeit the user is required to access Google
docs. However, this now seems irrelevant as it's no longer possible to
select team line up, set formations and tactics and other tasks without
sighted assistance.


OSM is a text based football management game with match simulations
occurring daily at different times on various servers.


Any help would be much appreciated although I am considering retiring from
the game shortly as I don't want to rely on my teenage sons to perform daily
tasks albeit taking approx. one minute.
