Welcome to XSinfo.Club.
Create a more inclusive ordering experience.
Members create an accessible format of their menu for people who need to either use voiceover or zoom for large print to browse their menu and make an informed choice when ordering.

Submit photos of menus to us and we will make it accessible on our site. Alternatively you can WhatsApp them to us too.
XSinfo.Club aims to compile a list of screen reader accessible formats of menus for blind customers who cannot read the hardcopy printed menus. Even if menus are provided online, photos without text description cannot be read by the screen reader, which will then need to be described in text so either the server, a friend or family member has to describe and dictate everything on the menu before making an informed choice. Inaccessibility impacts the customer experience. Send us a photos of menus and we will make it accessible on our site! Just fill in the following form and we will inform you when it's up. Thank you for joining XSinfo.Club to make information accessible.
About screen readers:
A screen reader is a software which reads out contents on the computer or mobile device as speech or output as braille. People use screen readers usually because they have difficulty reading visual information on the screen, for example, people with a learning disability, illiterate or with varying levels of blindness. People with deafblindness may use a braille display paired with a screen reader and that may make the speed of reading slower.
Images are a common and quick way to share information but images cannot be read by screen readers as the software can only read information in text.
Providing information in text also allows for translations to other languages.
Not only is conversion to text necessary but appropriate formatting will allow screen reader users to skip sections in order to get to what they need quickly.
Having access to the full information on a menu allows a person to have independent control over the browsing process and leads to informed choice making in the ordering process.

A Club of people passionate about making bite-sized information accessible.
XS sounds like ‘access’ and it also means ‘extra small’.
We are gathering Club members for a collective effort to make bite-sized information accessible to people who appreciate the little things in life such as a more inclusive ordering experience.
Share accessible formats of menus for people who need to either use voiceover or zoom for large print to browse the menu and make an informed choice of what to order.
We aim to increase individual choice and control over everyday activities like ordering from a menu.
