WordleBot Gets More Accessible

Federico Viticci updated his WordleBot shortcut based on user feedback:

Although well-intentioned, my original approach was misguided: even with line-based scores, the grid of emoji characters still performed horribly with screen-reading technologies such as Apple’s VoiceOver. WordleBot didn’t do much to make results more accessible for VoiceOver users since it was only reformatting the grid of emoji characters with additional text.

What I love most about this is that Federico made a thing that he thought would solve a problem, it didn't solve it, and users told him, but he didn't get mad or defensive, he made a better version.
