First time testing web #accessibility for #Adapt #elearning courses today. Now I can really appreciate the importance and added value of well-written alt text for images, having #ARIA labels etc. I tested with the #FOSS screen reader software #NVDA.
Do you have any thoughts, tips or resources related to accessibility?
I would love to try flashing a #Thinkpad with #Coreboot/#Libreboot at some point, but after seeing what it involves (flash plugs etc.), I'm not so sure I want to step any closer to the edge of that rabbit hole. I can already see the hours of trial and error and stress, with potentially nothing to show for it. I have a habit of putting too much on my plate...
Who wants to feature in the 'Why Privacy Matters' unit I'm working on for my course #DigitalPrivacyEssentials? Just reply to this toot with your 'privacy pitch' - how you would explain to someone that #privacy matters. Any responses used will be anonymised and I will let you know if you're featured. Thanks! #elearning #foss #Moodle #Adapt
I keep going to contribute to the documentation of projects I care about on @gitlab, e.g. @nextcloud, and noticing a #GitHub account is required. Why is there still so much reliance on GitHub for repos on GitLab? Can anyone recommend #FOSS projects to contribute to on #GitLab? I was pleased to notice @lineageos is on there... #git #opensource #privacy #security #software #programming
This pandemic means a lot of people are now having to choose appropriate communication tools, but it's a minefield out there. Understandably the right choice is unclear for many without the patience or experience. This is why we the community, knowing everyone needs privacy and security, must help family and friends utilise those tools we all know and love, software which puts people before profit. #Privacy and #security education is essential in these strange times. #FOSS #encryption
