Social media posts with “custom font” text are not decipherable by screen readers. Introducing Readable, which converts custom font characters to alphabetic characters to make them readable.

Had fun this weekend on the project Readable, which makes the increasingly popular "custom font" characters in social media posts readable by screen readers.

The extension is live here- [https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/readable/](https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/readable/)

And if anyone's interested in looking or has ideas for expansion, the source code is on GitHub here- [https://github.com/david-shortman/readable](https://github.com/david-shortman/readable)
