Uploading a new episode in Libsyn as a screen reader user

Libsyn is one of the podcast hosts which I use for a while.
It wasn’t screen reader friendly for a period but now is working reasonable I will say.
Actually, the only thing which I need to do in Libsyn web interface is to upload an MP3 file which is tagged and ready to be published.
I have to use an option called “file for download only” and after pressing publish or save Libsyn will generate a URL which is the direct full address of the mp3 file.
This URL is placed in a read only edit field and the last thing to do before leaving Libsyn will be to select and copy it in clipboard.
Using the PowerPress plugin in WordPress I can handle the rest of podcast episode’s aspects til this is online.
If you wish to hear a little demo made with Safari in Mac and using Voiceover screen reader, then you are welcome.
I used keyboard and trackpad navigation combined to achieve this.
As probably you know already, there is a podcasting course available for blind people interested to become podcasters.
For more details go to
the Podcast course’s dedicated page
Enjoy listening this little demo.
