Heute ist #Sehbehindertentag

Anlässlich dessen starte ich einen Aufruf an die internationale #Linux und #FOSS Entwicklungsgemeinde

Sehr gerne #boost :BoostOK:

Egal, ob ihr an der Entwicklung einer Linux- oder #BSD-Distribution beteiligt seid oder ob ihr #OpenSource-Programme programmiert:
Bitte geht auf blinde, sehbehinderte, motorisch eingeschränkte #Menschen zu und bindet sie mit in die Entwicklung ein.
Holt euch Feedback ein, ob eure #Software vollumfänglich zB mit einem #Screenreader nutzbar ist, oder welche Herausforderungen dabei bestehen.

Am Beispiel dieses Threads von @WestphalDenn , der hier beschreibt, welche Beeinträchtigungen er für seinen Anwendungsfall Audio-Bearbeitung erlebt (und warum er zurück zu Windows wechselt, was ja nicht im Sinne von FOSS-Enthusiast*innen sein kann, oder?)

social.cologne/@WestphalDenn/1…

#Barrierefreiheit #blind #Behinderung #Inklusion


Kürzlich den #NUC, der am TV als Medienabspieler dient, von #Linux auf #Windows umgezogen.

Vorteile:
* Deutlich besserer Sound (natürlichere Sprachwiedergabe und der sprichwörtliche vorhang ist weg)
* Medienserver und Player auf dem selben Gerät führt nicht mehr zu 80 % Auslastung des Systems
* Barrierefreiheit ist um ein Vielfaches besser. Selbst bei diesem Anwendungsgebiet

Nachteile:
* Fragwürdiger Datenschutz
* Kein Open-Source-betriebssystem

The Thunderbird story is an epic of countless individual stories, coming together to make something bigger than themselves. We're sharing those stories in a new series, and our first spotlight is on one of our amazing Bugzilla volunteers.

Arthur helps new volunteers document issues, as well as testing bug fixes. Read more at the blog, and find out how to share (or start!) your own Thunderbird story!

Shout out to Text Pieces! I needed to URL-encode a big ugly string (creating a template form from URL parameters, yay!) and yep, sure enough, it made it stupidly easy.

The next time you need to encode, transform, or convert some text on Linux, reach for this pretty little offline app instead of pasting your data into some random website. 👍

We did it, folks! Matrix has hit a new milestone in its open governance by electing a Governing Board to guide the Foundation and provide more representative and structured input to the evolution of the protocol.

Of course, while seating a Governing Board is a big deal, the hardest work remains ahead of us. I have high hopes for what we will accomplish together! 🚀 matrix.org/blog/2024/06/electi…

The votes have been counted! Introducing the first elected Governing Board of the Matrix.org Foundation 🎉

Thanks to everyone who ran and everyone who voted, and congratulations to those who have been elected!

This is a huge milestone for Matrix, and now we can tackle the challenges we face with greater community involvement: matrix.org/blog/2024/06/electi…

Goodbye #Sonos 2005-2024. You provided me nearly 20 years of audio playback, but this latest update was the last straw...

1. Install PiCorePlayer on a Raspberry Pi connected to speakers, add a DAC/AMP board and/or WiFi dongle as needed:
picoreplayer.org/

2. Install LMS on a local server:
lyrion.org/getting-started/

3. Install Squeezer on your Android device(s):
play.google.com/store/apps/det…

4. Repeat Step 1 for Additional Rooms.

5. Play Your Tunes.

Hello, hello Jamers 😍

Do #emojis have the same meaning for everyone? 🤔

These little images and characters, used to express emotions or represent characters and actions, are not always understood in the same way by #everyone. Their interpretation can vary according to #cultural context. 🌍 🌎 🌏

You can easily discern the meaning of each emoji at Jami. Want to know how? Read the article! 😍
