I've finally given # a try and while it's not for me, it's a fantastic # interface app alternative! #


Today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day!

On this Global Accessibility Awareness day, lots of good stuff, like this post from Google. Who in the Open Source land pledged to do better on accessibility and inclusive design today? https://blog.google/outreach-initiatives/accessibility/building-with-the-disability-community-2022/ # #


Honestly liking this accessibility preview from Apple https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2022/05/apple-previews-innovative-accessibility-features/ # # #

Hello!

Me: a leftie, feminist, bi, enby, made in the 70s, chronic illness haver, love & have dogs, terrible sense of humour, trying to spend my various privileges. Would like to be more of an activist but disability hampers that.

I love making stuff! Drawing! Building! Sewing! Sculpture! 🦄

Here because other social media platforms are traaaaash 🚮

Feel free to say hello ✨💜✨

Updated my guide to Mastodon for writers and readers including more links to instances and a brief description on how to mention others https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/2022/05/01/mastodon-for-writers-and-readers/ # # # # # # #


Made it into an expert witness database for my web and digital accessibility skills. I updated my resume https://blindjournalist.wordpress.com/tech/ # # # # # #

Content warning: Tip on replying


was quickly looking through your profile, and, like I said, if you need more assistance, would be more than happy to zoom with you. If you are looking for interesting people to follow, I would recommend looking through the trunk, which can also be found on my post under guides but a quick way to browse, is go to your local timeline, or, the Federated timeline and look through hashtags like # or #


Hey, I'm Darek Kay 👋

I'm a # # and an # advocate, currently working at IBM. I love sharing what I know through my #, # and # at conferences.

I enjoy hiking, board games, escape rooms and playing the guitar/keyboard. Lately I've been diving deeper into # as well.

I prefer reading and writing less frequent but more substantial posts.

Reposting this from four days ago to add hashtags:

I'm in communication with a new Mastodonian who is looking for a "Mastodon app that is accessible to the blind" -- I've asked for clarification as to which platform but I think that any information posted might be helpful to *someone*.

If you use a screenreader to access the internet, there's a guide to Mastodon written specifically for you at:

https://changeling.mx/MastoGuide

It's written by @changeling and you can support their work by donating to
https://changeling.mx/donation

(For those who don't know, screenreaders are used mainly by blind and partially-sighted people to read aloud what is on the screen. It's important for websites to be accessible so they can be navigated by screenreaders.)

# # # # # # # # # #


Tagging @weirdwriter if you have the time for a screen reader question, no obligation.

# # question derived from conversation with @donkeyblam -

How do screen readers handle the letter thorn: þ ?

If the screen reader is set to Icelandic, I assume it processes it normally. What if the screen reader is set to English? I have seen people use a thorn to represent "th" in words. Can screen readers process this as a "th" sound even in English?

Thanks in advance for any help!


# question

what are good mastodon clients to use for folks who need to use screen readers?


I haven't re-introduced myself here since about 2018, so here is a slight refresh:

I’m Eric Eggert, a web # expert.

I have worked with W3C’s WAI in the past, including writing tutorials and helping redesign its website. Then I worked with Knowbility for some years in the US space and recently I have joined Axess Lab.

I also lecture as part of the Content Strategy course at FH Joanneum.

When I’m not working, I enjoy Lego, TV Series, podcasts (#, #), hiking and (very recently) riding my new e-bike.

"Sorry blind people, hope you can swim."

You can credit my colleague in your # powerpoint, who took this photo outside of our office.

Tactile sidewalk strips for blind people. But they end abruptly on the edge of the sidewalk right next to a small lake. Making it easy for someone to fall in the water.


Reasonable Colors is an open-source colour system for making accessible colour palettes.

It uses an intuitive system of shades to help you select colours which meet the appropriate WCAG contrast rating, even if you're mixing and matching base colours:

A large title which says "Reasonable Colours" is overlaid on a pale spectrum of different colours


# basics. Not everyone uses sight, so they cant acces visual stuff. Here helps # which uses text to speech software, which allows it to speak. but, not everything can work with screenreader, some apps just are not read at all, some are partially accessible, some are just made that they work amazingly with them.


Retooting as old one had info my cat’s tag 😩:
I’ve sort of been on here since last year, but I never did the # thing, so hi! I’m Greg (gb on birdsite). I’m # lead / # designer at a company in #, but I used to live in # and even #. I’m big on # and #.

I love good/weird #, I like # macs and tech, and hanging with my kiddo.

Hi everyone, since the same issues come up again and again and are keeping people from using this site, I started a wiki page on Mastodon # stuff!

Please go and improve it, and share it with anyone who might need it!

https://en.mstdn.wiki/Accessibility

It is supposed to help use Mastodon right now, by explaining useful features that Mastodon already has and showing workarounds for features it lacks. It's not meant to imply that improvements to Mastodon itself can't or shouldn't be made :thumbsup_paw:


I challenge anyone who's fedi experience is improved because of image, GIF, video, or audio captions to take the time to personally thank at least 3 different people each week for describing their media!
Should it be expected at this point? Yes in most cases I think so. But reminding people that taking the time to do it is making a tangible positive impact, and causing others to see the social benefits at the same time is a great way to encourage people to do it more.
If you can't find many examples on your personal feed, just use the media only filter on your local and federated timelines; they shouldn't be too hard to find after that!
