Does anyone know of any blind accessible IM clients that are available on Apple & [either Android or Windows] devices?

I have a friend who primarily uses Text-to-Speech on her Apple phone, and relies on WhatsApp & Facebook messenger. I avoid those because [privacy nastiness + stalker history on them].

We want to talk more, but neither are sure what to suggest. "Install many things, find out which is accessible through trial & error" isn't really fair on her.

Need a creepy gift for your friends who are into that sort of thing? I've got a bunch of creepy, pen & ink artwork on my Book of Jen Store.

Each piece is hand drawn and one of a kind. Many of them are drawings of skulls.

Here is an example of one:

I released a new version of my Firefox extension that will forcefully redirect you away from privacy erosive services to better alternatives. It started as a joke, but I end up actually using it.

When I want to look up a place, I instinctively and mechanically start typing "maps.googl...". This extension will instead take me to OpenStreetMaps. It will also functionally translate Google Search links to DuckDuckGo and Google Translate links to Deepl.


Even if it is opt-in, user profile directory popularity contests are not likely to have a good outcome.

Try not to design systems which foster personality cults. There's too much of that in the silos already.

At this point the people funding the main branch of Mastodon seem to mostly be buying us growth-hack and popularity-reinforcing mechanisms that appeal to the impulses that have ruined every commercial social network.

Pay someone who has better ideas, imo.

if toucans are so good then why aren't there threecans???

Admittedly, I'm biased, but I'm finding this sped-up clip of a bunny eating a carrot stalk quite entrancing. ^_^

If you decide to follow me because I like OpenBSD or write tips about vi, be warned:

I believe:
-CoCs are good
-LGBTQA folks are awesome and deserve rights just like any of us
-Women and minorities have been screwed in tech and we need to fix it
-Nazis deserve punching
-As a white dude, if you/I get called out on something we did, the best response is to apologize and stop talking
-Meritocracies aren't

If you take issue with any of these statements, this place is not for you.
