I wish more people would talk about how captioning and transcription tools are not accessible to screen readers. Blind people want to make our audio and video accessible too. I'm just so tired, y'all. Can't even caption videos! 😠. 😫.

I am writing about this very thing next actually because I have been taking time off for self care, which means my output has slowed down dramatically, but I am much happier as a result

The very precious notion that if you're not suffering for your craft and that if you can't find time every single day to write 1000 words is the biggest crock of shit and makes writing one of the most ableist, unwelcoming things I've ever encountered.

Hey @Kensukevic and @NefMatOli could we do this trailer when we have a minute? #AudioDescription
Representation and inclusion matter. Lauren Ridloff, a deaf actress, is going to play MCU's first deaf superhero in the upcoming movie 'Eternals', and this is going to make a huge impact for the deaf community to be able to see themselves on the big screen represented.

This so just happened with @todoist, which has come a long way since I first tried it a few years ago. Back then, their iOS app was barely usable by VoiceOver users, but now, it is a whole different story, with only a few problematic areas and a very few unlabeled controls.

Remainder that AO3 takes donations to keep the server going and to pay lawyers to keep fanfictions legal. AO3 also offers services should an autor pass away so the stories don't stay unfinished and are given to a trusted friend of the past autor. Support AO3 if you can.

Hey @NWUAnthology I published my modern writers template, version 2, this morning. Care to link it? You can link directly to the Zip file if you wish but these work best in Microsoft Word. Check out the Wiki! github.com/rkingett/writerto… #CripLit
