Tomorrow is [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith 's poetry fishbowl. I'm signal boosting early as it seems we'll be snowed in under work tomorrow.

If you don't know how a fishbowl works, basically, you prompt stuff and Ysabet writes it. You can find more info at her journal.

Feeesh!

[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith is at it again. They're doing their monthly poetry fishbowl. If you want to play, go and leave them a prompt. Theme this time round is history as told by the losers" Feel free to prompt something. Ysabet will take those prompts and weave them together into stellar poems. If you post prompts you get a free copy of your poem. Plus, you can sponsor that one or any other that catches your eye.

There are also new verses added if you signal-boost.

So. Discord, the wildly popular chat program isn't accessible for visually impaired persons. Not even the phone app is accessible.

People have put up requests for accessibility, but the devs call it a "quality of life"feature, and actually had the balls to suggest to a totally blind Mac user that he should just use Zoom instead of Voiceover. For those of you who don't know, Zoom is a program that greatly increases the size of text. So, it's the equivalent of telling a deaf person to just turn their computer volume up.

But, they say that if they can get enough upvotes, then they'll consider the feature. So, I'm going to share their idea, because I've been fighting with Discord all day because literally nothing is accessible beyond creating an account and changing a few user settings and all of us are frustrated.

So, if people would be so kind as to upvote this feature request or leave comments that say you think that an app which has a focus on community shouldn't segregate part of that community, we'd be mighty grateful.

Here is the request page.

And [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith could you share this as well? Better yet, if any of you want to share this, please do.
