    Hi members:

    I’m Vijay, I’m visually challenged person. I’m a regular visitor of this wonderful website. With the screen reader I’m able to read the quizzes, but recently the lay out of the website has been changed, now the website is inaccessible for visually challenged persons, as we are not able to read the answer for the quiz questions, which are not compatible with the screen readers. I hope this annoying problem may be solved.

    Happy reading
    VIJAY
