Remember Basecamp's "How we stopped making excuses and started improving Basecamp's accessibility" article? Its author, Q&A and Engineer Michael Berg gladly answered some follow up questions regarding strategies, logistics and techniques of making an existing web app accessible: marcus.io/blog/interview-with-

Just revived an old account I made a year ago - follow @accessibility for developments in @Mastodon's journey to an inclusive web app

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: 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!

Reminder: In just one month, all NEW websites & apps published by the public sector in the European Union must adhere to WCAG 2.0 (alas, with exceptions). Read more & see the further timeline on my little info website on directive2102.eu

RT @domingos2@twitter.com: Hi @googleaccess@twitter.com Google analytics is almost inaccessible with screenreaders👎

RT @marcysutton@twitter.com: The team often gets questions about automated testing support for WCAG 2.1, so I wrote up a blog post: deque.com/blog/support-for-wca

RT @_marcusherrmann@twitter.com Worth a bookmark for German followers: @gglnx@twitter.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 : fragdenstaat.de/anfrage/liste-

"Eine Gruppe wird dabei offenbar vergessen. und fürchten, im Job abgehängt zu werden, weil nicht mitgedacht wird." (via @OliverKepka@twitter.com, @domingos2@twitter.com)

advice combined with a meme from the best Star Trek movie ever produced = 👌
RT @aardrian@twitter.com [4/2] In general, I recommend underlining links in body content. Don‘t let Stack Overflow tell you otherwise. adrianroselli.com/2016/06/on-l

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) :)

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.

When using a hashtag:

Not good: #hereismyhashtag

Good: #HereIsMyHashtag

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

Playing around with a microsite for the project, but really struggling with phrasing/text/copy. Can't go past the "todomvc comparison". Especially native English speakers out there: Do you have suggestions for better wording?
