Accessibility to send files

I have some blind users using with Jaws (Jaws | Revendedor Oficial no Brasil | OSB Software)

Their main difficulty is send a file to the conversation. Is there a way to do that with key mapping ? Or slash command ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Fabio! Welcome to our forums!!!

I have not found a short cut or slash command for that.

However, if you copy the file and paste it into the channel or DM textbox, the upload modal will pop up.

Can this be an option for your user?

To some cases, yes. I will try to code it and send a pull request. Maybe you accept my code :grinning:

Thank you !
