Enable accessibility features

To provide a more streamlined screen reader experience, the gdcloud CLI comes with an accessibility/screen_reader property. When you set this property to true, the following behaviour is enabled:

  • Status trackers instead of unicode spinners: The phrase working is displayed on stderr while gdcloud CLI is performing tasks.
  • Percentage progress bars: Progress is displayed as a percentage, written to stderr.
  • Flattened tables: Boxed tables are the default output of many list commands. Instead of the queried resources being displayed in tables drawn in Unicode, results are rendered as a flattened list of items. Also, consider using the --format flag to define your own format.

To enable these accessibility features, run:

gdcloud config set accessibility/screen_reader true
