Chrissy Antonopoulos | Blind Beauty Issue #22

The full description of Chrissy Antonopoulos' photo are in the body of the post.

“Nope you don’t have double vision, this is what the Spotify app looks like when you have large font on iPhone.” ~Chrissy Antonopoulos

Screenshot of enlarged text overlapping in a music app. The list of music is white text on a black background.Chrissy Antonopoulos is the founder of the non-profit, See Through My Eyes. She has completed two degrees from the University of Sydney in Applied Science and Clinical Trials Research. Additionally, she has received a Graduate Diploma in Psychology. 

Chrissy has also been a featured guest here on Bold Blind Beauty.

Oftentimes when we talk about accessibility in the disability community we seldom see what it looks like in the real world. In the screenshot provided, you can see how the magnification causes the text to overlap. This is a problem a lot of people with low vision face in many applications.

“It’s so frustrating when apps aren’t accessible. I use Spotify every day and I can hardly ever see what I’m doing and it gives me headaches trying to decipher the text because it is tiny and overlaps. It would be lovely if companies valued our dollar as much as others and made their services accessible! 2018 should be the year of making EVERYTHING accessible!” ~Chrissy
