Boosts appreciated. For people interested in #FOSS and #linux, what communication platform do you like most?

@devinprater Introducing FossAbility! This project seeks to gather a community who can work together to make accessibility central to free open source software! #a11y #foss

@jookia @devinprater Might've picked it for a11y reasons; it works in every screenreader combo I tried, including emacspeak + EWW. Gitea still has keyboard traps, among other issues.
@jookia @devinprater Oh. Well, a mirror could work if sourcehut has issues.
@jookia @devinprater Some have ethical/ideological issues with GH, Tor users have to enable JS, and sourcehut seems to have the best a11y of the four.

@Seirdy @devinprater sourcehut a11y is poor at best and run by a dude who doesn't give a shit about a11y

@jookia @Seirdy Really? It seems okay to me. It's the only one I know of that isn't non-foss but also accessible to screen readers.

@devinprater @Seirdy It's accessible to screen readers but makes that up in difficulty with navigation and using email

@jookia @Seirdy I mean, is there some other open source service that's accessible that works better?

Someon may try out @codeberg !?
I don't know, if It's #a11y. But it's a trustworthy #FOSS Maybe the folks there could help in a11y

@jookia @Seirdy

@JoergSorge @codeberg @jookia @Seirdy It's based on Gitea, which needs a full accessibility investigation just to tell them to fix accessibility issues. So no, I'm not going near that.

Yes, sadly Gitea accessibility is awful, and we currently lack the power to fix this on our side. We can't yet recommend our platform in that regard.

@raboof @codeberg @JoergSorge @jookia @Seirdy Yep, now it's locked to contributors. Too bad. Let them have it, I say. SourceHut works fine for what my project needs it for, and honestly the same thing is on Github too, for now, until we get contributions that diverge it.
