Hello, Project Team,
Since joining, I am gradually getting around how to find (that's hard(, and post, (don't enjoy the limit of characters but understand why have a limit in the first place. You will teach me how to be more economical when writing).
Is there information for people who are using adaptive technology to help them if they have problems navagating or interacting with your website? Personally, my memory for what to do is at fault. Other people may be new to it and need some explicit instructions. I know this is a lot to ask, because this would need to be reviewed and updated as the technology marches on.
I'm not finding how to navagate to your font options via my keyboard, but I can use Ctrl+b/i. I don't care for number or bullet lists. I'd copy and paste from word if I did.
I don't mind emojis because my software can usually identify what they are - sometimes not quite accurately, I have discovered, but maybe that will improve, given more time and effort.
However, I am not hearing any embedded alternate text for images which would briefly describe what it is, for example, if I could include one for my avatar, I would write:
Head and forelimbs of a ginger and white cat on a maroon bedspread, with 'Mekitty' written in green.
I could say that because I know she was on my bedspread when I had taken the original photo. I have tried to use a Microsoft tool in Word documents to include text descriptions which text-to-speech readers are supposed to read when anyone using such adaptive technology encounters the images inscluded in Word documents. But it didn't work! I don't know what I did wrong. It is just really annoying to hear 'image' or as on this site, when encountering an avatar, I hear it is so-&-so's avatar. I can't visually interpret much of what I see, and less as time goes by.
I am interested in what avatars people are using.
I too would like to edit after posting, if only to correct spelling errors! I do try to check what I am about to post, but still some get past the editor! Of-course I do better when I am not v tired.
As much as I might enjoy the idea of including pictures or audio/video, I think that might make getting around more complicated. I would like 'fancy features' to be optional.
what is this 'symbol 2 0 0 b' my
text-to speech reader keeps announcing at the end of my text when I am writing
a post? I think I have removed it, sometimes, but notice nothing different when I do. It seems to do no harm, so just curious.
