I follow, this is indeed vary frustrating.
Same goes for @ mentions. Very hard to get the search working on a screen reader.
I think the best we can do @nktech1135 is probably provide some special keyboard shortcut. Maybe something along the lines of:
- Select post you would like to quote
- @sam post #7
- @sam post #6
- Select the sentence you would like to quote
- sentence 1 “Hi”
- sentence 2 “I’d like to give a huge thanks to the people in this thread. I help admin a couple of discourse instances and have noticed most of the things mentioned here.”
- quoted block is added
I like this mechanics, but it is a very big job to build. Luckily we can build it in a component so we can experiment first. Adding it to the list of projects we have to experiment with. Fair warning it may take a while to get to it, but I agree it would be fantastic.
