I am not accessible enough. - IG Post
"I am not accessible enough" is a carousel posted on Marjani Lane's IG page January 17th 2022. This is the all text version of all of the slides.
And it is entirely my fault. Although @marjanilane_v2 exists for those need bigger more legible font, as well as less distracting colors and images...is that really good enough? am I doing enough? And to whose standard? Visually impaired people are being left out of the loop with my work.
And as someone with vision issues including being monitored for a transition into the early stages of glaucoma and having a brother who is blind in one eye and losing sight in the other...there is no excuse. I apologize for not extending my accessibility beyond @marjanilane_v2 and captioned videos.
Starting today - you will be able to find my posts in their "pure" text form on my website under BLOG. This is for easy reading and for those who use screen readers. I will also be making a better effort to ensure the alt texts on both of my pages is utilized more often. As i have over 400 posts, archiving this takes time - but it will be done.
