Hey all. Has anyone attempted to use the app close5? It is an app that allows people to buy and sell things locally. I wrote to the support team to ask if that app could be made more accessible for the blind. This was about a month ago, and I was told it would be looked in to. Yesterday, I wrote to check on the progress, and I got the following response. I understand they are a new company, but we as a group need to show them that we deserve to have access to the app as well. After reading this response, could you please write the company expressing your interest in having the app become accessible? Go to www.close5.com and you can submit a support request from there.

It's something that's definitely on our radar. Unfortunately, it's likely something we won't be able to get to for a while, simply because we're still
a new app that's really focused in on getting our platform & experience stable before we can start expanding our offerings.
