Just got my delivered. I thought they were joking when they said it was a titanium card... But now it makes cool music against my ace pride ring.

MK11, Games, Accessibility 

Mortal kombat 11 has been the hardest install for me with Steam thus far. I had to use the JAWS cursor just to agree to the license and complete the install process.

I've had to explain the pronouns on my nametag basically every day since I put them on there and while I'm glad to do it, it's lowkey tiring after a while. And I've just been doing this for a few days, and these are the pronouns I was assigned at birth. I can't imagine how exhausting it'd be if they weren't. Trans people are so strong.

Jackbox Party Pack 5, blind people 

See? Not only can blind people play You Don't Know Jack, but I can finish on the positive side of the score board.

Games and Screen Readers 

I am happy to report that Jackbox Party Pack 5 on Steam is useable if you rely on a screen reader with the OCR feature... Just don't spend 30 minutes thinking that doesn't work before discovering you need to maximize your window... True story.

Apple Card, Apple Jail 

As of today, anyone in the U.S. can have an . Coming next year, for those who can't pay off their . It'll look just like the retension centers in Ready Player One.

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. 

Switched gears and played some . I'm very much enjoying this style of game. It's like an secape room on steroids.

Games and #A11y 

Had some help getting set up, and now I've been able to play . Oh. Slightly related note, you can now find me in the Steam Community. Let's see if you can figure out the URL.

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.

๐Ÿ‘‹ Helpful Reminders ๐Ÿ‘‹

๐Ÿ‘๏ธโ€๐Ÿ—จ๏ธ 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!

๐Ÿ‘” 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.)

๐Ÿ”” 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?

Reflecting on life without life partners or offspring 

Employee benefit enrollment and tax time: Just 2 out of many times during the year where I get to appreciate that some things are easier without a life partner or offspring.

Aceness and Identifiers 

It's probably time for me to change some of my identifiers, but I don't want to remake the Powerpoint that explains how I exist. Maybe I'll make it a Prezi since I'm here...

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

General assumptions about blindness, dog guides, let's see if you can figure out the other implications 

PSA: Yes, I'm a blind person. Yes, i like dogs. No, I do not have a dog guide. No, dog guides are not the perfect solution for every blind person. Besides that, the doctor won't clear me for one until they declare me in remission. It was my pleasure to share with you this information.
