In case you missed it: Michael Berger, #a11y engineer from @email@example.com (who wrote "How we stopped making excuses and started improving Basecamp's accessibility") answered some questions I had regarding their shift to a more inclusive webapp
Remember Basecamp's "How we stopped making excuses and started improving Basecamp's accessibility" #accessibility article? Its author, Q&A and #a11y Engineer Michael Berg gladly answered some follow up questions regarding strategies, logistics and techniques of making an existing web app accessible: https://marcus.io/blog/interview-with-michael-berger-of-basecamp
Dave Grohl is such a legend. It‘s hard to describe how this video captures my own love for music and my memories of learning how to play: https://youtu.be/e05H80-k0mY
BTW he played each of the 7 instruments in the 23 minute song at the end in a single take. That’s how hard he rocks. + it’s a really good instrumental!

RT @email@example.com: The #axeCore team often gets questions about automated testing support for WCAG 2.1, so I wrote up a blog post: https://www.deque.com/blog/support-for-wcag-2-1-in-axe-core/ #a11y
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org Worth a bookmark for German #a11y followers: @email@example.com has made a request to the Federal Republic of Germany and asked for a list of state-owned companies that will be subject to #Directive2102 #eu20162102: https://fragdenstaat.de/anfrage/liste-der-von-eu-richtlinie-20162102-betroffenen-unternehmen-im-besitz-des-bundes/
#accessibility advice combined with a meme from the best Star Trek movie ever produced = 👌
RT @firstname.lastname@example.org [4/2] In general, I recommend underlining links in body content. Don‘t let Stack Overflow tell you otherwise. http://adrianroselli.com/2016/06/on-link-underlines.html
Just for the record: I love Mastodon.
Is it the end-game of the peer-to-peer, decentralised, end-to-end encrypted personhood-protecting platform(s) we need? No. Is it fucking awesome? Yes.
(Do I love you, @Gargron? Yes, I do) :)
It’s a beautiful brick on the bridge we must build between the centralised and peer-to-peer worlds.
Now let’s use it like the stepping stone that it is, be thankful that it exists, help make it even better, and interoperate with it on the road to greener pastures.
New people of Mastodon:
Welcome! I'm happy you are here! Here are some tips for accessibility
You can add a description to an image you post by clicking on the image before you hit TOOT! Type in a brief description. It helps people who use screen readers to know what the image is.

Screen readers garble the first one, but can read the second one because of the capitalization.
