An Amazing Response

On Wednesday night, whenever I went to use
The Mobile Version
It kept saying “same page link” for every link on the page. I couldn’t click the links either. Yesterday it was apparent that I wasn’t the only one having this problem.

I saw on Twitter that there was
A form
You could fill in if you were having problems with your assistive technology. First of all, I think this is brilliant! Not many sites would care to have this sort of thing! On the form it even has a choice of screen reader that you’re using, and it doesn’t have a horrible word verification image! I thought i would fill in the form just to see if it made a difference.

Within a short time, I got this response by email:
