Realising there’s next to no info on accessibility of commandline apps anywhere. (Got to thinking about it after realising that column-wrapping text on CLIs is inaccessible.)
A StackOverflow question on the subject didn’t meet their guidelines. 🤔
So this is how I finally ended up implementing the wrap feature on the Help screen: as an option. By default, the screen is accessible (doesn’t wrap lines) and it only wraps if you pass the --wrap option.
