I've been doing some simple fixes to GemiNaut to improve accessibility
further. In particular there is now an option to skip over each
preformatted section if you are using a screen reader - and the link
includes the alt text label (if any) so you can make an informed
decision whether to skip or not.
I've created a Github ticket and pushed the changes.
I haven't rebuild GemiNaut binary yet, but I'll do a new build soon.
