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 #accessibility stuff!

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

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:

@wilw Hey, welcome!

CoSo doesn't federate with the rest of the Fediverse, so most people won't actually see your content there. Considering that CoSo is basically a USA-only instance... that'd be kind of a shame!

(I made my first account there too, and didn't learn how limiting the lack of federation was until a couple weeks later. Then I joined m.s until I could find a smaller instance. Then it was weirder.earth and kitty.town for me.)

@TheKinrar are you planning any updates for instances.social? It could use some of the new api functions.

For all those new on the Mastodon and coming from the Twitters... Do you miss the Twitter layout? Checkout Halcyon for Mastodon (desktop). Login on social.userspage.net/ with your Mastodon username in the format "@username@mastodon.instance" and see Mastodon in a new way. Pretty neat huh?

Here's an extended mockup of how Trumpet (which will rename to GNOME Social once I finish up the important bits) will look. There are a few things I don't have mockups of yet.

@better on your homepage you mention The Deck Network but that network has shutdown. Maybe change it to the current spotlight project?

Like your books in audio? Accessibility For Everyone is now an audiobook!

Listen to me talk to you about how we can make a more accessible and inclusive web for less than four hours. Unabridged, narrated by me, and thanks to the hard work of my brother Sam.

I also wrote a little bit about the audiobook on my blog: laurakalbag.com/accessibility-for-everyone-audiobook/

I am admin on a (legacy) free Google Suite subscription. I want to end this subscription. But, one email address on this subscription is connected to a Youtube account, my daughter doesn't want to loose.

I can't change the mail address on Youtube for this account. In the settings, I get redirected to her aboutme.google.com page where I can change nothing. Also on myaccount.google.com I can't change a thing for her.

What would be the best way forward to keep the YT account?

Hi folks! Just wanted to give a quick update on where I'm at with morii development. I've decided to hold off on building more of the app until the pixelfed/anfora APIs are able to be tested with in production. I did this for a couple reasons, but mostly I'm shallow and I'm way more motivated to build things if I can get tangible progress towards my goal as I'm working :)
