#AltText is something I advocate for, as well as some other simple ways to make posts more #accessible and #inclusive. Let's make this #interactive.
Reply with an #image and I'll tell you what my #ScreenReader thinks it shows, as a practical #demonstration of inaccuracies, limitations and why alt text is better.
Edit on request: Not all screen readers can do image recognition. Alt text is the only viable way to be inclusive. #accessibility #blind
I keep hoping to see #Publishers post accessibility guidelines for submission.
Several post the should be shunned Shunn as the perfect example.
First major issue - size 12 point font. I think I was 15 the last time I could read anything in size 12 of any font. At least 35 years ago!
Then he says to choose an easily readable font, and proceeds to list the two least readable fonts ever created!
Times New Roman and Courier are both like writing something in pencil, and erasing it half way out. And in size 12 point font - the rubbed out lines dance on he screen. In fact, ChalkDuster font is easier to read.
A readable font is Arial Rounded MT Bold six 18. Even then, it is sometimes too small to see.
I keep hoping #Publishers will begin to accept #Accessible written content.
Allow #Authors to use a font they can see.
Allow #Disabled, #Blind, and #DeafBlind writers to publish in your magazines.
It only takes a minute for you to reduce the size of the font, if you don't enjoy reading in a readable font. However, authors may not be able to read your notes and edits, if they are in an #InAccessible font and font size.
Which means they can't correct mistakes.
Oh, and nix the phone numbers. If I wanted to do a talky, I wouldn't be publishing.

It makes it easier to read and more #accessible. Single words are OK to keep lowercase, unless they are proper nouns 😉
As an instance moderator, it makes it easier to review if you're a #MastoAdmin.

Content warning: Long accessibility-related post
For many use cases, there are alternative approaches legitimately better suited to how people actually operate their devices, across various assistive technologies and input methods. For instance, dropdowns with type-ahead, offering more of an opportunity to browse before committing, rather than constantly navigating back and forth across drop zones which could be far apart.
The article highlights challenges in finding a preexisting holistic system, without delving into the possible reasons for that being the case until now. User feedback is also not a panacea; are you asking someone to evaluate whether they can use a thing? Or whether that thing is a good idea, and/or if a better thing could theoretically exist?
