It’s that wonderful time of year where you get free online talks about inclusive design for a whole 24 hours courtesy of Inclusive Design 24.

In two days: 23rd September, don’t miss out!

@samuelroland making something easy to use and approachable (to me, the most important elements of “good looking”) are certainly part of making software accessible. My book title means “for everyone“ as in making websites for both disabled and non-disabled people, but also as in instruction for people in many different disciplines/job titles.

My book, Accessibility for Everyone, is back in stock in paperback! Hooray! 💚📗 (And big thank you, A Book Apart.)

Preorder yours now and it’ll be with you in 6-8 weeks.

Not on elementary OS?

Couldn’t care less about task switchers?

That’s OK, you can still download and use the lovely wallpaper by @margodeweerdt you see in the screenshot in the previous post.

Join us live in 15 minutes for Small Is Beautiful. Our topic this week: One Bad Apple.

If Apple can no longer be trusted on privacy, what are the alternatives and how do they fare on topics like security and accessibility?

@accessiblestef Aw! 😍 that was such a special conference, you all looked after me so well. SEVEN years ago 😱

This is a long shot, but has anyone worked out how to get an Elgato Key Light Air to consistently connect to a Mac? Mine seems to be really temperamental.

@pimoore if you use a wonderful service like @mastohost, it’s very minimal effort!

@dosch hmm, that’s possibly for two reasons: 1. is now, but 2. because that tracker doesn’t exist in our current list:

(And I can’t remember why… we don’t often remove trackers…)

@ff0000 a combination of slow supply and a cursed age bracket!

A long read where everyone comes out looking bad. (And those portrayed as the ”defenders of privacy” aren’t necessarily doing so out of the goodness of their hearts either!)


Folks who signed up for the mailing list, I’m really sorry I can’t email you about the skipped livestream tonight. I’ve managed to lock myself out of my Buttondown account 😞

Promise that I’ll get it fixed and get emails out to you in time for next month’s stream!

We’re skipping July’s Small is Beautiful this month as @aral is getting his second COVID vaccination the day before. We’ll be back in August!

You can get a reminder for next month’s stream via email or RSS on
