if you can't organize offline, there is a need for organizing entertainment to combat loneliness and depression. think about online events you can organize for friends, older folx, kiddos, etc. movie nights, game streams, book discussions, stitch n' bitch sessions, the possibilities are endless

Question for anybody who uses a screenreader or other accessibility software on GNU/Linux, or knows anything about them: What DE/WM should I recommend to someone who wants to try using one?
I have a friend who's blind and deaf, and his main system runs Debian with no gui installed. He uses BRLTTY to read his TTY with a mechanical braille display.
He also has two windows systems that he uses for some things, with NVDA and JAWS set to output to his braille display.
He emailed me recently saying that he's fed up with a lot of the things Microsoft is doing with Windows 10, and he wants to try using a GUI on his Debian system so he can browse websites that won't work from a terminal browser, and do other things that he's using the windows computers for right now.
Has anyone tried using a few DEs with a screenreader? I think anything that works well with a screenreader should work with his braille device. boosts appreciated

Just told my office mate I was looking forward to his being out of the office later this week so I could keep the lights off. he nicely informed me the lights in this office have never worked, and I've just been flipping the switch for no reason.

Heads-up! If you’re one of those accounts that has status updates in your display name, like X is going to Y event, I’m hitting the unfollow button faster then the A&B buttons when you get knocked down in mike Tyson’s Punch Out!. Ain’t nobody got time to listen to the same sentence over and over.

just a reminder to please please PLEASE use an image description whenever you can, even if it's literally as short as "a pic of me" or "me" or "cat" it makes the website more accessible to everyone and is a feature that's very easy to use! there's even an automatic caption generator in the image description field (it's in the "edit" secton if you click "detect text from picture")
