  1. Too much scrolling, keyboard shortcuts, confusing format

    Accessibility has become a nightmare in Neo, because it apparently didn't occur to anyone that having to move the mouse around a window more, will contribute to more problems with carpal tunnel and other repetitive stress injuries. There is entirely too much scrolling in Yahoo products now.

    In Yahoo Mail everything requires double scrolling - once in the browser, and another in the Yahoo Mail window. One scroll bar only should be necessary: the one in the browser!

    A related issue is when a message in the Yahoo Groups archives is wider than the message window, it is impossible to…

  8. Ads should not interfere with someone needing to enlarge the screen to read please fix this issue. It happens to a lot to visually impaired

    People who need to enlarge their screen to read Yahoo should not have the frustration of having an ad interfere with reading contact. Often there is no way to X out these ads and they interfere with a person's ability to read anything on yahoo. Even a slight increase causes the ads to jump all over the page and prohibit reading contact. Yahoo Please Please fix this, you would have many more subscribers. This is a frustrating and unnecessary problem that prevents so many from enjoying your content. There should be a way for someone to enjoy reading Yahoo and…

  10. Online help only for people who are not up on technology and who have a disability, is not helpful at all!

    I need a telephone # to call instead of having to jump through all of these hoops that I don't understand how to do in the 1st freaking place. So please abandon the idea that everyone knows how to do what they need to do with the online only choices you have provided,. It os not okay. And not being up on technology is actualIy a disibility initself in this day and time. i need to get into my account. I only have one day a week to work on what I need to work on from my account and…

  11. Please fix the bug that does not allow braille displays to read and grade 2 braille.

    There is a bug with voiceover and Yahoo, which makes Braille output switch from contracted braille to Grade one or computer braille every time there is a new link or a new paragraph.

  12. You could try asking people who know about disability to set up your website - it is one of the least accessible on the web.

    I flounder around for hours, trying to work my way through the IT jargon, looking for plain simple English, before I accidentally do something I might, or might not, have wanted to do. Then I can never find that place again. A lot of the site is (quite pale) blue or grey on white - how is a visually impaired person supposed to cope with this? And the type sizing is relatively small with no decent sized button to click on to enlarge it.
    You really don't have a clue!
