Wanna know a really easy way to make a slack message more accessible? If it includes a link, format the link to read as text, not just share the raw URL. This can help reduce cognitive load, provide the opportunity to add some context for the link (which most folks here do anyway) and prevent a screen reader or similar technology from reading out a url as “H T T P …”

Oh that's a good idea!

I've updated the Member Handbook to specifically recommend this practice.

If you ever see me doing something inaccessible, I want to know! Can't always promise I can do anything about it, but I can promise that I care.

I updated my most recent post here, slack doesn't seem to let me edit older ones
