I wrote a guide to Discord for screen readers, and now I'm part of their #A11y channel. This'll make it easier for me to keep on top of updates to the service.
Discord Accessibility Sensory Overload
My favorite thing about #Discord is that channel muting allows servers with lots of visual content not seem so bad. It also confirms my suspicion that visual media I can't access and spawns billions of notifications is evil.
If I posted text posts about anything I cared about on facebook the algorithm would not show it to almost anyone thats even following me. It would literally just drop off the radar and be forgotten. I post a random thought here and people from around the world actually have a chance to respond. That is powerful. That cant be underplayed. The fact that we dont have to worry whether our messages have financial viability makes our ideas stronger. Our voices ring.
