I have CSS on the .art instance that puts a very discreet blue dashed border around media that doesn't have alt-text. It's a way for people to see at a glance if media is described before choosing to boost it or not.

I've been seeing some images on the TL recently that don't have a border but also don't have alt text. Looked a little closer and found out that they just have a space in the alt text. So it's posting without that blue border, but still has no alt text.

FFS, people. Not cool.

I wrote a new blog post, because that's something I"m doing again. It's long, but I"m proud of it. livinglunarwolf.me/what-its-li

Greetings to the Fediverse this day.

RH Voice TTS works very well on this particular Chromebook I'm using. The Chromebook Duet from 2020.

I see that it recently got Talkback 12.1, though mind you I'm on Chrome OS 96 Beta.

For those with M1 Macs, the developer of Dystopia has flipped the switch for the app to be available in Mac Testflight and man what a joy it is to use if you like Reddit.

@pitermach @freakyfwoof@mastodon.social @borrisinabox@mastodon.social I myself have been using a Firefox extension called Extra sounds (where said sounds can all be customized to your liking).

Description of add on, after the link:

addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef

About this extension

This add-on will add sounds to your Firefox. Currently it supports 5 events: the start and complete of navigation, new download, the download is complete and error downloading.
This add-on can be a replacement for the outdated Navigational sounds.

@freakyfwoof@mastodon.social You’re very welcome!

Glad I could be of service.

@freakyfwoof@mastodon.social

Greetings!

It took me awhile to find this, but here's the current list of supported Mastodon file formats that i know of:

code.horrific.dev/horrific/mas

In short, .mp4 and .webm are the supported video formats I read from the above link.

In addition since each instance is managed differently, I have absolutely no idea what the maximum file size limit is, unfortunately.

Also see
fediverse.party/
, for dedicated decentralized sites dedicated to music/video uploading.

So, here's my Invisible keystrokes idea, based off of an OCR Mac app found at

github.com/chigkim/vocr

VOCR uses the Modifier CMD+CTRL (referring to the "Mac's" control key).

Examples:

CMD+CTRL-W = Hide/unhide TweeseCake interface.
CMD+CTRL+Shift-H = Help for invisible interface.
CMD+CTRL-N = New Tweet/Toot/Message.
CMD+CTRL-R = Reply
CMD+CTRL+Shift-R = Retweet/Boost

From the VoiceOver Utility, make sure that "Allow VoiceOver to be controlled with AppleScript", is checked.

@TwCakeApp@mastodon.social Greetings to y’all over at the factory today.

First off, an fantastic update y’all have here on the Mac side. Sometimes it does give some errors which I shall post later on my M1 Mac Mini, but otherwise I say it’s gold!

Secondly, I just may have had a solution to bringing the invisible interface to the mac side. (Did I choose the right word?)

I’ll post said keystroke idea in another Toot, as there’s no room for it here.

@Keao@mastodon.social A little late to it, but good afternoon to you as well!

Greetings all, among the witching hour (at time of writing). Yeah, sleep is hard.

May your cold dash away in do time while you’re sleeping, and awesome about the book you’re reading.

@radio1975@mastodon.social Your test was successful. May you have a good sleep.

Thanks to all who have followed me on here as well over the last 24 hours or so.

If anyone is interested in checking out the Super Demension Fortress world, please feel free to let me know in a mention/DM, and I shall guide ya along.

Hello to my mates among the Fediverse!

If you’re getting the error:

‘ZSH, Command Not Found’

when using home brew on Mac OS 12, follow the steps over at

code2care.org/zsh/fix-zsh-comm

, and all should be golden.

NB. the command to save output to Nano was written wrong by the author. The keystroeks are:

1. Control+X
2. Y for yes.
3. Enter to confirm.

@Ricardus You have got to be kidding me! *sigh* Thanks for sharing this info.
