Duolingo no longer accessible for visually impaired screen reader users

I have been learning Spanish for some months now and have been really enjoying it. I am totally blind and use a screen reader on my laptop to access the web version of Duolingo and Voice Over on my iPhone to access the app. Since the Crowns update both are no longer accessible, so I am unable to learn anything new. I can still practice lessons, but because the skills are no longer links nothing happens when I tap on my iPhone or enter on my laptop. I can access the crown levels on skills I have already completed by pressing space on the number, but since there is no number next to a skill I am halfway through or am yet to complete I can't get into it. Will this accessibility issue be resolved? I will be gutted if I have to stop learning. It was all so accessible before.
