The Fediverse has a lot of blind or partially sighted members who use screen readers to listen to posts. Large groups of emoji make life difficult because the reader reads aloud each emoji's text description back to back.

✅ You can make your posts more accessible to blind users' screen readers by only using individual emoji, and avoiding large groups of emoji.

For example 😃 is fine but 😀 😆 :bloblaugh: 😁 👍 😃 😜 🤗 :blobcatcoffee: causes problems.

Hey everyone! I’m thinking of making an informative post on the classic 1-10 Pain scale and why it doesn’t work for both #neurodivergent and #ChronicallyIll people, and I’d need some feedback from other people who are a part of the #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain and #ActuallyAutistic communities. If you’re interested in telling me more about your feelings on the 1-10 Pain scale please feel free to DM me or just respond to this toot! Also please boost this for me!

Hey folks with #EDS / #hEDS, especially people with big hypermobile hips and craniocervical instability! What kind of mattress is good for you?

I keep getting torticollis and have dodgy hips and I just have a cheapy Argos mattress so I think it's time for a change...

We (Hyp-ACCESS) are probably mainly going to use our account on here for Hyp specific mutual aid and organizing that will be less interfered with than on IG. Especially until there's more Hyp Crip presence on here, we just created the group tagged at the beginning of this toot (hopefully correctly). All Hyp, Chronically Ill, & Disabled folx are welcomed to FOLLOW to chat with each other about Hyp+ access and work together to fulfill aid requests.

A better world is possible but not inevitable. There is no guarantee that capitalism, the state, colonialism, or the other hierarchies that domineer our lives will crumble before the climate crisis wreaks havoc on the the populations of all life on earth. There is no guarantee that any of us will live to see a brighter future. We need to fight for it. We need to stop waiting for revolution and instead engage in mutual aid and direct action and build dual power in our communities now.

boosts appreciated, helping folx 

I just got my pay for december and we received 300€ extra by the government, but since I don't partiularly need it, I will be redistributing it completely to those that do need it :3

Feel free to share your paypals and such if you're in need of cash ^^ I'll prioritize bipoc, na, disabled and queer folks

@mutualaid Disabled Native American has less than 30 days to pay back US Govt Disability for having earned “too much money” to collect disability (but not enough to live on). $4 and a share on your socials will save her life. Goal almost half reached! gofundme.com/f/erasing-the-num

Request: Can people please drop their fave 'Intersectionality 101' references here?

Especially if you're disabled and/or have information that refers specifically to the importance of intersectionality to disability rights and justice!

It's harmful to expect anyone to read Kimberlé Crenshaw's entire back catalogue (for eg); it's just not accessible! However, understanding the importance of intersectionality within and across movements and groups is key to our success/es.

Please boost! ❤️

We have no idea what we're doing! Most user instructions are text-based which is very inaccessible to the Crip running our socials. Send tutorial videos if you have any! We will probably migrate to a different server once we figure out what's up. Unfortunately very little disability presence on here so far.
