So assuming we disable accessibility services by default, how will our visually impaired users use Tor Browser?

Ask this UX question to Mozilla. But it's better than having tickets like #31681.

Yeah preventing visually impaired people from using Tor Browser seems like a bad choice. As cypherpunks suggested, better to file a UX bug with Mozilla so they can work out how to do this properly.

#33445 is a duplicate.

Replying to pospeselr:

Ah, when opening #33445 I was thinking that those users could just enable it if they need it, but yes, maybe they can't access easily the preferences when accessibility services is not enabled.
