PSA: Are You Blind and Like to Knit or Crochet?

Lion Brand Yarn is now offering free knitting and crocheting patterns in speech and Braille-accessible formats. They have patterns for home, adults, children, babies, toys, animals in English, French and Spanish.

To make information more useful for screen reader and braille users, they provide additional color descriptions of their yarns. They have added information to the patterns and pattern directories that are not visible to sighted readers but that make it easier to understand the patterns when they are read by text-to-speech browsers. They offer free instructions on how to learn to knit or how to learn to crochet. They are in the process of making these tutorials accessible as they are currently PDF files with images.
