Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!
@dean Wow. Yeah the Github issues should speak louder than the accessibility statement.

"Enough is enough. I can't see what is served by keeping Julian Assange incarcerated"
New Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese @AlboMP #FreeAssangeNOW #auspol quote on an image of the newly elected PM
Imagine #libraries don't exist, but there's this person who thought of them and is trying to convince everyone else about them.
-Borrow books for free? People are going to steal them!
-You can just come in to use a computer? Well that's just going to be abused by freeloaders.
-Staff? Who is going to pay them? Why should my taxes be wasted subsidising access to books for people who haven't saved and bought their own?
How many amazing things do we dismiss? What is our society missing out on?
Please boost for visibility: Global Accessibility Awareness day (#GAAD) is on May 19th. I’d like everyone that can to turn off your monitor, or close the laptop lid and connect a keyboard, or close your eyes, and turn on your OS screen reader, and use your computer with it. How does it make you feel? Do you know enough keyboard commands? Does it give you enough info? Does it make you enjoy using the computer? Do you feel productive? Why or why not? #a11y #screenreader #blind
To make your hashtags on Fedi more accessible, use CamelCase. It makes hashtags easier to read on small screens and small displays, in addition to making Fedi more accessible for screen reader users. For example,
a hashtag in CammelCase capitalizes the first letter of every word. So,
Ableism and Covid
This is ableism at its worst! The disability community have been dieing and having their lives restricted by Covid and anti-vaxes think they are one of them 🤬.
250 WA (Australian) nurses, police, and teachers who are anti-vax, are claiming their stance is a "disability" for which they are being discriminated against and are taking their complaints to the Australian Human Rights Commission.
