skaymithro_work: I will try to think about accessibility mistakes.14:14
skaymithro_work: you've got font size and color14:16
skaymithro_work: I'll ask twitter too14:17
skaymithro_work: if presenters could have accessible descriptions in notes of their slides for helping people afterwards (I don't know of software that would help with this during a presentation)14:18
skaymithro_work: that would help for people who are blind14:18
skaymithro_work: if there was a way to make a slide deck work with reading software, that would also help14:20

CarlFKI think the twitter thing broke due to twitter not allowing an old API in the last month or so17:44
CarlFKI bumped into that with my tweet thing.. pip upgrade (or whatever the syntax is) seemed to fix it17:44
iiiehm, yeah, I had a client's site break for that too come to think of it17:44
iiieoh?  for mine it "just didn't work", I replaced the widget with the new one17:45
iiiebecause the twitter api is real and I was using a js widget17:45
CarlFKI was using some python module.. so about the same thing17:45
iiiepip rocks17:46
