Whoohoo, a shiny new version of @pinafore ! With a new Emoji picker! 😄 And totally accessible! 👍️
This is pretty entertaining. You hear what you're doing as you play, there's also a bunch of unlabelled controls below the text field to replay what you typed and some other things.

A keen self-hoster writes about the new voice/ video calling features in Conversations:
NVDA could potentially see some huge performance improvements in the latest snapshots.
Wowe. If this does what I think it does, I'll completely give up the Vietnamese synth add-on and upgrade NVDA from 2019.2. This is absolutely groundbreaking if it works right, @NVAccess@twitter.com:
New blog post: "Building an accessible emoji picker" https://nolanlawson.com/2020/07/01/building-an-accessible-emoji-picker/
In which I describe how I implemented #accessibility for emoji-picker-element. Happy to hear feedback on how I can improve as well! 😁
@pitermach For example treating some roles including application, document, presentation as needed, and interpreting text changed events differently when some properties are set e.g. aria-live.
Also aria drag and drop needs screen reader support.
Focus management is left to the web app authors, states and roles arre communicated through standard API's.
@pitermach For web authors W3C examples is a good resource. E.g. have a look here for the toolbar implemented with rowing tabIndex: https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/WD-wai-aria-practices-1.1-20170628/examples/toolbar/toolbar.html .
Screen reader should inherit most of what's actually needed from the webbrowser and the particular API e.g. IAccessible2 or UI Automation on windows.
What is screen reader specific are features that relate to interaction model of individual screen readers.
Back in 2016 @OpenTechFund@twitter.com paid for the public security audit of Matrix's E2E encryption by @NCCCrypto@twitter.com: an absolutely critical step for Matrix. Today, OTF is under attack. Please help save them for the sake of the Internet. #SaveInternetFreedom #SaveOTF https://saveinternetfreedom.tech
It is proven!
Android apps can be built using only standard packages from Debian Buster!
"This project helps to document the Android tools in Debian by providing an example build, and can serve as a base template for new projects for those who would like to develop Android apps using only truly Free and Open Source software."
The POP3 support in @k9mail is bad 😢 I'm putting on some band-aids now. But I'm pretty sure we'll remove support for it in the future.
If you're using a POP3 account with K-9 Mail, now is a good time to switch to IMAP or to start looking for a different email app.
#bountysource changed their ToS such that bounties that have been posted more than 2 years ago will be seized by them (probably to fund the blockchain company that bought bountysource a while back). The change will become active July 1. If you have any bounties on bountysource posted before June 30, 2018 you can ask to redeploy your bounty on a new issue once.
@microg will no longer advertise the use of bountysource for issue bounties. Please refrain from posting new bounties there.
Really excited to share the details of the academic Matrix research that Florian Jacob and team have been up to at KIT DSN - come learn all about how Matrix decomposes over at: https://matrix.org/blog/2020/06/16/matrix-decomposition-an-independent-academic-analysis-of-matrix-state-resolution 👀🤓👩🏾💻

Awesome guide from @email@example.com for Synapse powerusers on tuning disk space. We'll be incorporating as much of this as possible into Synapse itself in future :)

Ugh, the #wikipedia app switched to using Microsoft Appcenter for analytics.
Now that's actually an open source library (Though I wouldn't want to use software that uses it).
But that library pulls in google play service libs. Game over. 😕
This whole thread is worth a read, but if I had to choose a TLDR this link would be it. Congratulations, this is definitely a pretty historic and groundbreaking moment.
I want you all to check out this blog post by Playstation, and listen to the videos in it. Get a real taste of the audio queues you'll be using as you play The Last of Us Part 2. https://blog.playstation.com/2020/06/09/the-last-of-us-part-ii-accessibility-features-detailed/
