accessibility post comment 2 years ago

From Matt Arnold to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Hi Drew

  You really hit it out of the park with your latest post. Certainly
made my recent efforts look like childish scribbling by
comparison..But you left a key consequence of the problem implied but
not stated.
  That is in the free software world, our failure of imagination on
accessibility leads the very people who could improve the situations
you identified  to be excluded from our communities in practice.You
always say `do what your  interested in`,
   And solving accessibility problems created for me by the rest of
the FOSS community seems to be my interest, one of the major ones
anyway. I might write a blog post on this myself. But I just thought
i'd mention it to you first

Re: [VSSS] Cleanup patch 2 years ago

From Matt Arnold to ~marnold128/disabled-linuxing


  Working late, one last thing before I go to bed, I've just done a
couple of things. First I used git-send-email for the first time. I
like how that worked so in future I will use it. But I have made one
final changeset without going through the new process.

1. Update Version number to 0.3.6, We will probably drop the 0 when we
get to 0.4
2. Make the whole mess posix compliant,  really only required three changes
3. Ran the whole thing through a formater

  Now that i see the difference in this vs git send-email i will
probably continue to make unilateral changes and announcing them to

[VSSS] Cleanup patch 2 years ago

From Matt Arnold to ~marnold128/disabled-linuxing


   So this is now a thing. I choose to see the fact that i created a
mailing list, and the used it to send a patch to myself as not a bad
thing but a good thing. After all, if I want to contribute to making a
better linux environment for all disabled users, my own projects have
to be run as well as possible. Anyway,

   This here patchset is five patches. It continues the cleanup work I
have been doing, Primarily by deleting things, but it also adds a
Makefile for colorize-pipe, and fixes that pesky gtk warning. It also
renames my config file to end in .matt so the user can't get my
settings by accident now.

accessibility issues 3 years ago

From Matt Arnold to ~julienxx/castor


  I'm not sure if this qualifies as a bug or something, but. In Gemini
all the links are buttons. This looks cool but the text of the link
can't be copied to the clipboard. Which leads to some accessibility
challenges for me. As my solution to a rare visual impairment relies on
copying text to the clipboard can there be an option to style links,
more like weblinks, instead of buttons   I'm sorry i don't have a patch
but i haven't played with Rust in three years or so.
