This is a request/plea to your program developers:
My brother is blind and uses a screen reader (JAWS) to navigate round his Windows PC, and Voice-over to navigate round his iPhone.
Composing a text message on an iPhone is possible, but labourious, particularly if it needs editing.
TU go would seem the perfect answer. He could either compose his message on the web page, or use his favourite text editor then copy/paste it into the message section on the Tu go site.
There is, however one massive drawback in that the web page is almost completely inaccessible to him via his screen reader in that tabbing round the buttons on the button-bar, all he hears is "Button Menu collapsed" for each and every button. There is nothing to tell him which button he is on! Tool tips do not work with screen readers as tool-tips are triggered by the mouse position whereas navigation with a screen reader is done via the keyboard.
I am not a HTML expert, but I m sure something can be added to the code to make it accessible by screen readers.
I urge you to look into this for his sake and tor all the others who have to rely on assistive technology
