Discussion on: What would your opinion be of a "reading position" indicator on DEV?

On mobile it works well with a scroll-to-top float button. I'm trying to find a site where this was implemented, but I really enjoyed the indicator + top button combination. It was a site to read novellas so it really helped to quickly know how much I'd covered.

Considering the only thing this does is visually alert you to how much of an article you've read. Perhaps it might not be so useful as a lot of posts here are usually short reads. I tend to think I would need it if I was reading a 15k words article. At most an estimate of the reading time is a better visual indicator in my opinion.

Just curious, how does fair for accessibility towards screen readers and other enhancements for people with disabilities?
