Support Accessibility APIs

Spotify doesn't make use of the OSX Accessibility API.

 

For my own uses, that's nothing more than an inconvenience - it just means I have to use the mouse more than I'd like to.  But for blind or visually impaired users it must render the app unusable.

Unfortunately after various attempts to communicate with spotify developers, the application is still inaccessible and very inconvenient to use by a visually impaired person. I'm a premium subscriber of the service and must admit that only can get access to roughly 40% of the features that are available to the community.

Yes. The Mac version of Spotify is totally unusable. It's very frustrating that the Mac is just as accessible as iOS and yet major companies like Amazon, even Last.FM, simply don't have accessible Mac software. So I add my vote for an accessible Mac app.
