I'm the maintainer of GNU social and on the SWXG.

GNU social has just started active development.

We will be doing everything sensible we can with regards to web
accessibility, as well as providing any and all enhancements needed to
facilitate accessible social activity.

We should have something visible in approximately two weeks.

Until then, GNU FM will also incorporate GNU social functionality, and
is ready and being used in production -- http://libre.fm is the largest
GNU FM install right now, with over 30,000 users and 24 million songs
played.

Would be happy to hear of any accessibility enhancements for GNU FM.
