I can understand that.  However most coding nowadays (especially
for this project) is text, so that's already the lowest common
denominator.

Jitsi w/ audio-only certainly seems to be a step in the right
direction and would be more inclusive.

Is there any speech-to-text transcription done for the hearing
(or extremely bandwidth) impaired?

It'd ideally go to #git on IRC (or something that doesn't
require a browser to trigger swap storms on old systems).

Even for people with good hearing, acceptable audio quality for
speech seems tricky to get right, being dependent on mics,
bandwidth, codecs, background noise, speaker/earphone quality,
etc.
