Re: I will vote against WCAG 2.1 Draft


were these issues raised previously? Yes, GitHub is not the most ideal 
of tools for many reasons, but there are workarounds that can be applied 

One of the quickest is to set your browser to pretend to be a 
mobile/phone device. This results in GitHub going into mobile view, 
which linearises reasonably well and is reasonably responsive (though 
some advanced functionality is stripped from those pages).
