Apple Card, Apple Jail 

Decided to add on to the challenge of my coursework by completing a mock needs assessment, Individualized Education Plan goals and learning objectives without using pronouns to refer to the student. It's interesting how wired one's brain is to use certain forms of language.

More stuff about games. It's kind of my new deal. 

Games and #A11y 

Our rental car for the day is a Chevy Impala, so my coworker is stuck with me making Supernatural references. I'm Sam, he's Dean.

Opened up Chrome this morning, and discovered the automatic feature is now available in stable Chrome.

πŸ‘‹ Helpful Reminders πŸ‘‹

πŸ‘οΈβ€πŸ—¨οΈ You can add image descriptions! This looks a bit different if you use any of the mobile apps, but in the standard mastodon web interface you just click a textbox on top of the image preview. If you can, adding image descriptions is very helpful to people with visual impairments. Even something as short as "dog" is a lot more than nothing!

πŸ‘” This is also where you can find the image crop tool, so you can do them both at the same time!

I walked out my front door today, and right into one of those people who was going door-to-door handing out their religious pamphlets. I'm pretty sure it startled both of us.

We LOVE image captioning here. We are very pro captioning. It can be hard to get used to doing so on a regular basis. I highly recommend following @PleaseCaption

This bot is very non intrusive and will just DM you if you forget to add captions. If you do, you can just delete-and-redraft and add captions without losing any of your info!

(You can find "Delete and Redraft" under the ... icon on your toots.)

πŸ”” To get started:

1. Follow me and I'll start to follow you back
2. Every time you forget to add a text description to an image I will send you a reminder.

Don't want reminders anymore Unfollow me!

The phrase "just to put a smile on it" poses the question What is "it", and where on "it" does the smile go?

Aceness and Identifiers 

Reminder: OCR is the beginning and not the end of making your text accessible. It often outputs some garbage and always benefits from a look over and some cleaning up by a human. It is not magic and it doesn't mean there's no work left for you. Sorry.

I just want to see a girl save a cute boy and fall in love, presented in earnest and not just as a joke or an idea

I don't care about a "strong woman who needs no man," i think girls should be able to indulge in this kind of sexual/power fantasy rather than be expected to rise beyond it

I think we don't see it not because we don't want a girl to save someone but because we're afraid to see boys in feminine positions complete with all the trappings of the role
