Use Apple Shortcuts to make shared Wordle results even more accessible by converting emoji to images and adding alt text.
I’ve combined the best of both Wordle Normalizer and WordleBot to make a more complete solution for people who can see the emojis and those who use screen readers. It keeps the mechanics of WordleBot, but before converting the grid to an image, it replaces the colored squares with their more distinguishable counterparts from Wordle Normalizer. I also added a couple of quality-of-life enhancements that smooth out the sharing flow.
My thanks to Zach Knox for getting the ball rolling and to Federico Viticci for doing the heavy lifting on this shortcut. I decided not to change the ‘WordleBot’ name since most of it is still Federico’s work.
The origin and methodology of this shortcut are documented in this blog post.
