I think we on the left could use a lot more friendly, approachable media. While I love me some good aggressive graphic design, right now, I think the right is consistently winning the propaganda game in part because they wrap their ideas with really easy-to-swallow tone and appeals to common sense. We can do that too, in pursuit of a more compassionate, humane, and just world.

So I made a couple images for my local chapter of the IWW that I'm pretty proud of.

I have SVG versions of these if people want to play with them. I'm happy for these to be spread widely; please download them, share them, modify them, whatever. Information wants to be free!

Question for folks who use screen-readers:

On a website or document, how would you prefer people to format a logical progression, for example in a software menu?

I often use the "greater than" symbol, like so: File > New > Text Document.

I've used in the past the arrow mad of two characters "->", but I suspect that might be appalling for screen-readers...

Which one(s) of these options do you prefer? Or something else as a reply if you want.

Boosts appreciated.

Request for help with cover art 

Sooo... Apparently Bandcamp requires cover art. I have never, ever in my life even considered that this could be a requirement. Therefore, not only am I unable to make any because blind, I also have absolutely no idea what I would want because I'm not sure what you would usually find in cover art to begin with. Does anyone have any ideas? All of my current music is on my Soundcloud (link in my profile).

Did I ever tell y'all that Google Play Books ( is accessible when reading? Just ust Right arrow to flip forward a page, or left arrow to go back. Sure, no continuous reading on PC like Kindle, but on Android, Kindle doesn't do continuous reading either, most of the time. I mean, like, wow, we actually *have* options in this space, and it's amazing!

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Man, the things you can discover at fanlore. Why isn't the OTW part of the fediverse again?

"I have given you everything you asked for," the king said. "Have you succeeded?"
The alchemist stared into his wine cup. "I have discovered that which can turn one thing into another."
"The philosopher's stone, which turns lead into gold?"
"Time, which turns words into regrets."

indirect link to youtube, AI that poorly solves a problem nobody has, things invented for blind people that we didn't ask for 

"Since it usually has no dialogue nor sound effect, most of the time watching music videos is simply just listening to music tracks for blind people." Why is that a problem? Isn't the music the point? Well, anyway, now we have an AI solution to solve that problem that we apparently have. That's...good, I guess.

Looking for a new to read. I just ran across four Harry Potter fanfics in a row with an OC named Aurora. Really, folks?

So. Clubhouse experience on Android. Haven't found any issues thus far. Might even be better than iOS.

The latest Webaim Screen Reader Survey is now open! It only happens every 2 or 3 years, and it's extremely important for research. Even if you only use a screen reader sometimes or just for testing, they still want to here from you. by /u/Superfreq2:

the web is a kind of box where you write "what are the worlds best socks" and it says "these are the worlds best socks" and you buy them and they're the world's worst socks

Youtube link to an album about poop 

I think I've found the worst album. 14 children's songs rewritten to be entirely about pooping? Sure, why not! This. This is why not.

Good morning, I am also crying about the boat. (This is a good story though, how did I never know anything about how we got the survivors we did from the Titanic?!) And I cried again at the note after the story: "it matters that they tried."

It's that time of year again to fill out the WebAim screen reader survey if you use one either because of disability or testing your websites!

COBOL - Built to Last

In this sense, COBOL and its scapegoating show us an important aspect of high tech that few in Silicon Valley, or in government, seem to understand. Older systems have value, and constantly building new technological systems for short-term profit at the expense of existing infrastructure is not progress. In fact, it is among the most regressive paths a society can take.
