New macOS Catalina feature Apple told me they’re extremely excited for—aside from Voice Control—is something called Hover Text. Basically, hover your mouse on a piece of text anywhere in the system and it enlarges it. Fonts, colors, sizes, all customizable up to 128pt.

Still a bummer :-D
Hard to recommend the US as a good place for international conferences. Or even visits, really. What a colossal overreach and escalation of what is already one of the most hostile and unwelcoming border processes. https://twitter.com/bbcnews/status/1134897211421188101
Addressing inclusion one website at a time or one application at a time is a thankless task and ultimately a losing game.
Working with Knowbility and the W3C to make the Web a better, more accessible place. Thoughts are my own.
