1/ For people wondering how they can make information about the protests and current events accessible to people who are blind or that have low vision- here’s a short thread of posts I’ve written that help with improving accessibility of photos, videos, and text content

now they want to talk about people?! where was that energy when they asked you why your talks about race and privilege were needed at a tech conference?

sorry for taking up bandwidth with my rants, but apparently the obvious needs to be said. take care of yourselves ❤️

and let’s not forget that when you talk about supporting digital equality for people with disabilities - that includes people of all colors. how can you support one cause and not the other?

and for those of you unable to see that what is going on in the world with POC is about human rights and call it a “political issue” - you are hereby banned from using the word inclusive in your next tech article/talk because you clearly don’t know the definition of that word

on a normal weekday I’d be posting something about tech, design, or accessibility...but these are not normal times. instead I’m going to continue to listen to and support Black voices in any way I can - from retweeting/liking posts to donating money and time to organizations

thanks again Mike for sharing your knowledge with us! we always learn something new when you present 💙 side note: since this was a live talk, it takes a bit of time for us to add the closed captions...but our team of volunteers are working on it! 💪

correction, you need a personal assistant to tell you that you *rock* at speaking and your voice needs to be heard more. I still get chills when I remember the impact of your talk last fall ❤️

They are finally here by default. Image descriptions on twitter, commonly known as alt. Describe your images as if you're talking on a phone. Do keep it short though and in your own tone.

I definitely did not invent the idea of “shifting left” or “putting accessibility first” - many great minds before me did. I believe the article quoted on applying this concept to pattern libraries specifically
