Love this. Very much in the spirit of what we’re working on.
@aral Thank you! I finally got to setting up my own instance today. Looking forward to the ride...

(Yes, this is niche.) ;)
@hans Or, I should say, to the fediverse :)
@hans Welcome to Mastodon, Hans :)
it turns out that NYTimes "Privacy Project" was a honeypot for privacy advocates all along (who built a ladder of legitimacy for Google to climb), not just readers (who had their data pilfered by tons of Big Tech trackers). #SurveillanceCapitalism
Looking into OpenCollective… first impressions:
* I like the model
* Open source (nice)
* No trackers on site/source (nice); trackers in docs because they’re using Gitbook but that’s not the end of the world
* Paypal seems to be required for fiscal hosts; based on past experience don’t want to give them access to my bank account.
* I’m worried about the angel investment; they seem to be going down the VC road – so what’s the exit?
* This is worrisome: https://docs.opencollective.com/help/internal/queries/emails
Update: don’t use that script as-is, it imports all issues as open. FFS! (And, of course.) Fucking GitLab.
Export/import issues with GitLab CE
@aral I just asked about this on birdsite too; hopefully someone jumps in with some good news. https://twitter.com/garrett/status/1136984315366125568
@aral Also, Firefox and Chromium probably interact with Orca differently under X11 versus Wayland (and native Wayland apps vs X11 apps on Wayland too).
Using the X11 versions on X11 is most likely the best combo for now, due to the length of time it's been around. Hopefully Wayland will keep getting better a11y support as time progresses.
@aral People are definitely talking about accessibility issues on gitab.gnome.org @ https://gitlab.gnome.org/search?group_id=&project_id=&repository_ref=&scope=issues&search=accessibility (and there are quite a few merge requests pending too).
And, of course, there's the Orca repo on GNOME's gitlab. That's probably a good place for general screen-reader issues: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/orca/issues
So it looks like neither Firefox nor Chromium are accessible under GNOME (silence on the screen reader). What’s worse, it doesn’t appear that Overview mode is accessible (tested on Pop!_OS). You cannot use the search on it (e.g., type software – the s disabled speech).
Does anyone know where these issues are being discussed?
