People who utilize adaptive technology have to resort to specially designed applications because the websites and software do not meet their accessibility needs. That’s why blind developers are very welcomed in the blind community. Not only do they create applications that often excel past the mainstream while being accessible, there's a level of security when a visually impaired computer user purchases an app from a visually impaired developer. Chicken Nugget is one of many apps developed by the company Accessible Apps. They are the makers of Qread, an accessible EText reader for the blind, Qfeed, an accessible RSS reader, Qcast, an accessible podcatcher, Hope, an accessible interface to Pandora, and other software and add-ons that are screen reader friendly. Chicken Nugget, which is an accessible Twitter application, has been updated to 3.0 today. The list of features and enhancements are so vast Accessible Apps says that this update is the biggest Nugget update they have had to date.

One thing not mentioned in the changelog that I'm particularly proud of is a new test suite which makes finding and squashing bugs easier.— Accessible Apps (@AccessibleApps) August 26, 2015
