UG's Usability

One of my motivations for coming out of the shadows many years ago was to write the following article. Do you guys think UG is accessible to everyone? The report I did some years ago suggests it's not but maybe things have changed with regards to screen reader tags. Also, there is no more whitespace...it's now ad-space. Also, I noticed that UG doesn't have a tagline...but there are many lines that would fit...

Ultimate Grohl...

Ultimate Mustaine...

QOTSA - Songs for the Deaf...

etc...

Enjoy.

You should get new hobbies.
That of which includes cleaning your room and cooking without posting pictures of them.

Also, it's close enough to a tagline, in case you've never read it:

I would have thought that the title of Ultimate-Guitar was obvious enough that you don't really need anything else to tell you what the page was about....

Didn't even notice that back then ^^ it's not abundantly clear on the site though...in fact, that tagline isn't present from what I can see. And since I found out about this site from word of mouth, I would have missed that completely. Maybe this highlights that tagline is not clearly visible to the customer?

It's been said many times and in many different ways on the new articles.

No i follow articles (sadly) and it has never been a trend at least. I have never even seen it. please stop acting like you know everything about this site, because you just started posting here.

I think they need to make the website more accessible for users who don't have the internet.
