I realize it's not applicable for all games, but would it be feasible to implement screen reader support for PICO-8? I don't know a lot about WAI-ARIA for web or anything about accessibility of standalone applications, so I don't know how such a thing is to be done, but we already have printh() commands sending data to the "@clip"board - adding something like "@tts" (text to speech) seems PICO-8-ish.

PICO-8 already does a lot of accessibility-positive things - the color palette includes a lot of nicely contrasting brightnesses and hues, the controls can already be remapped freely, carts can implement optional mouse and keyboard input - and setting up for speech reader integration would give programmers another way to make their carts playable by everyone.

That sounds like it could be used to circumvent pico8's non-existent support for voice output?
</devil's advocate>

...was there some conversation about PICO-8 voice output I wasn't here for?
