A simple way for a visually impaired user to make a web page easier to access, either directly or through a screen reader, is to simplify the web site. The easiest way to remove clutter is often to find the printer-friendly version. These print this page links remove headers, sidebars and visually-distracting ads. The text is allowed to flow across the entire width of the screen, taking advantage of the increased legibility of enlarged text in widescreen monitors.
This would work so that clicking on a post, or a page, or a section, or even the whole blog, could be output as a printer-friendly document for backup or other purposes.
There is a plugin called WP-Print that implements this concept. Problematically, WP-Print is not so easy to install and set up. I also can’t see how to use it to print categories or the whole blog. It has taken me a while to figure out how to get it working on this blog.
Too few use WP-Print. Having a built-in print option throughout the blog, be it on pages, posts, archives, categories, etc., would be a significant accessibility improvement for WordPress readers.
