I'm looking for work, starting end of this month. Anyone looking for someone to audit websites for accessibility?

YouTube just like Twitter, will keep bigotry and harassment for views, ie greed. twitter.com/TeamYouTube/status

You'll be happy to know that but both Music and Apple TV apps on Catalina have Applescript dictionaries. Music even has stuff for controlling Air Play.

I'm pleasantly surprised.

After living in Germany (3 years) and France (4 years), this is what makes me saddest about the Americans who argue against universal healthcare. Most people have no idea what it’s like in other places; what it could be like here; what it should be like here. twitter.com/maryrobinette/stat

DO NOT hire consultants or sensitivity readers if you're just looking for a stamp of approval and have no intentions of changing your content. It's a waste of both of our times.

I have spent two years getting targeted by racist and homophobic abuse from one of @YouTube@twitter.com's star creators.

Today, YouTube decided that none of this violated their terms of service:

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.

Thirty years ago, I stood in the centre of Tiananmen Square and took this photo of the crowd. A million faces: peaceful, fearless, filled with hope. They can never be erased from my mind.

⬇ This!

It’s also what we do in accessibility. And usability. Make your stuff more simple, use the simplest answers. Don’t search for complicated ones.

1/ So often, we think that big problems require complex solutions. This is what I call the ‘complexity bias’. People who suffer from this bias have become so ‘educated’ that they don’t see the most obvious and effective solutions anymore.

This is Apple putting their foot down and only allow privacy-invasive sign-ins if you give users a privacy-conscious alternative, in this case Apple sign-in.

That’s good news. Devs mostly use sign-ins for convenience.

Wow. Apple sign-in support is mandatory? developer.apple.com/news/?id=0

Don't skip this! @teleject@twitter.com provides a Design Showcase of Skip Links. Creative ways to provide better site navigation to keyboard users. knowbility.org/blog/2019/skip-

So we have `position: sticky` but no :sticky pseudo-selector?

-.- would be so useful.

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. twitter.com/bbcnews/status/113

Me: “Oh, illustrations like that would be great to add something to my presentations and articles.”

*looks through them*

Ah, not one person with a wheelchair or a cane or some other disability. *sigh*

We need more diverse stock illustrations.

THIS.

Addressing inclusion one website at a time or one application at a time is a thankless task and ultimately a losing game.
