Hi, the used Discourse Software sadly does not seem to make screen
readers a priority :(, but they seem interested in feedback[0]

Just an idea: Would NNTP Support help here? There seems to be a
maintained plugin[1] and if that works well enough, access via any
NNTP client or a simple site / forum like the dlang forum[3] that
plays well with linux and screen readers might be an option.
