blindmp2It makes sense that the shift to mobile – and the stripped down, sparse aesthetic that in many cases comes with it – makes web navigation easier for someone using screen readers and other tools designed to help people with varying levels of sightedness. Mobile sites often mean a more pleasant experience for sighted users, too.
