I often see instructions or guidance on the wiki where the writer wants to provide a link. Often those instructions say something like this:
Yikes! Hold on a minute here — Fedora, like many other operating systems, has users and contributors who are blind or have severe visual impairments. They may not be able to “see” your link, and in their cases, you’re giving an instruction they can’t possibly follow. This usage is very common in English, so it can be a hard habit to break. I know it’s still an effort for me not to fall into this habit.
Fortunately solving the problem is easy. Use one of the following phrases instead:
Ah, that’s much better, and now everyone can follow your instructions. It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking this issue is one of “political correctness” or social niceties, but I believe it’s simpler and less controversial. Fixing this particular usage makes the wiki more accurate. People don’t “see” a reference, they refer to it. In the case of a URL, they can refer to it by visiting it. This particular language fix doesn’t make the wording awkward or bloated, so it’s well worth using the more accurate version here.
