How do screenreaders handle sensitive media on Mastodon? Mostly interested in the web thread view but clients are good datapoints too.

It seems Mastodon will actually remove the img element from the html completely until you click to show it

Does that differ from how you wish they were handled?

@emacsomancer @algernon @technomancy @mala Turns out part of the solution for having a cool idea space not just be taken over by toxic people is to start forming other communities that are also taking up those ideas but are not filled with toxic people (and make an effort effort to not promote toxicity)

PSA: borgbackup project needs more funding!

If you can help, please contribute.

I currently can not create new bounties for github issues as bountysource org funds are at zero.

Liberapay can alternatively be used.

wow, codeberg.org/ is *gorgeous* now - beautiful and I hope as user friendly / accessible as well. Sadly I can't judge that.

@neauoire I’m still waiting for “Falsehoods programmers believe about peoples’ accessibility to technology.”

Turns out it’s pretty hard to do two-factor authentication when you’re trying to pay a utility bill from a public library computer.

Wow this blew up. I don't have a sound cloud but if you land a job, join a union. If your workplace isn't unionised, start a union.
