The new #a11y API for #GTK 4 is taking shape in GitLab: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/-/m

The new implementation drops the old abstraction layer called ATK, and it's heavily modelled on WAI-ARIA; on Linux, it will talk to ATs using AT-SPI, and on other platforms it will use their native API.

A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station. :ablobgrin:

"I attempted mathematics, but I got on very slowly. The work was repugnant to me, chiefly from my not being able to see any meaning in the early steps in algebra. This impatience was very foolish, and in after years I have deeply regretted that I did not proceed far enough at least to understand something of the great leading principles of mathematics, for men thus endowed seem to have an extra sense." -- Charles Darwin

some overlooked human emotions:
-wamt fruit Now
-the way irish music sounds

-Do Not want to leave warm water
-eating toast
-the relief of turning the last night off at night and finally being in darkness

> I see that Star Trek: Voyager has added a new character, a Borg. (From the photos, I also see that they’re still breeding women for breast size in the 24th century.) What ticked me off was the producer’s comment (I’m paraphrasing), “The addition of Seven of Nine will give us limitless story possibilities.”

I would watch dan luu trek.
