@weirdwriter I need to be able to boost this like thousands of times so that everyone in the fediverse sees this. Everyone! I mean I know this isn't nice or anything but I almost feel contempt for some people who just shove open source in my face and I'm like "no, if it's not productively accessible, I ain't using it!" because few people working on open source stuff care. They're too busy dreaming up some cooell new standard that replaces some other standard cause ma freedom! All that bull crap! Blind Linux users can live in their unproductive command lines if they want, I'm done with the bull crap! Yeah i use the command line where it makes sense. I use NVDA. I use Hugo for my blog and site or whatever. I don't use a CMS because I probably don't need one. I use quite a few open source programs. But that never is the deciding factor because open source, as a whole, doesn't give a crap about accessibility, and none of them devs give a crap about me as a blind person. So why should i give a crap about them and their work? Sure, the folks who make accessible stuff I will support with my hard-earned money. But others who don't care? No!

@devinprater Thank you! Buffer will be sharing it later in the week, so boost it then! Share it on Twitter, if you can, also. Sharing helps a lot more than you know! I totally hear you. On everything. Sure would be nice if people would make more accessible software rather than just whine normal people are using closed, big tech, software.
