The author of this article only discusses 2FA that requires a mobile phone.

Some of us have age related presbyopia for which the "Flyspeck 3" fonts used by mobile phones is unreadable; for us, these devices are hostile. The requirement that 2FA use mobile phones is a violation of the Americans With Disabilities Act (and constitutes unconscionable ageism, as well).

Try KeePassXC (mentioned in the article) on your favorite desktop O.S. I'm running in Mint 20.3, so it's not just for phones.

Note that it can be setup as a TOTP source. Admittedly it's less secure if you are browsing on the same device as is running the software, but at least it defends against server-side password breaches.
