@NoomCoach I am on day 2 of my 14-day trial, and I am almost ready to cancel right now. 1/ I generally advocate for #bodyacceptance and #healthateverysize #HAES, so I am skeptical of all "diets" particularly the rhetoric around restriction and bad calorie science
@NoomCoach 2/ Your app/program claims to have a different relationship to food and value than other diet programs. And while I appreciate the gesture at not labeling foods "good" and "bad" your color-coding system is basically the equivalent
@NoomCoach 3/ Your calorie logic is *EXACTLY THE SAME* as every other diet program out there--weight loss is a simple equation between calories in/calories out. Which btw is overly simplistic. You basically have a teched-up revamp of @WeightWatchers_

The WCAG guidelines are intended to aid designers and developers with creating #accessible websites and apps. But it gets really technical really fast. So for beginners, I try to focus on the actionable parts of the guidelines, namely the P.O.U.R. concepts
(cc @JustineLom)
The first category in P.O.U.R. is Perceivable. This means that users must be able to perceive the information being presented – it cannot be invisible to all of their senses.
Questions: Is there anything on our website or app that a person with a disability would not be able to perceive? Does this work with different types of assistive technology devices? Make sure to think of all the different types of disabilities.

Great question Wojtek and thanks for the chance to answer Sorry it'll need a (massive - take a toilet break, grab a cuppa and a comfy chair) threaded response as my tweet kept growing !! 👇👇
So #SAtSD is an attempt to create a shared collaborative approach to designing public services in Scotland. We are co-producing the approach based on collective thinking and actions across orgs and sectors that design and / or deliver public services in Scotland.
That currently includes many people and service design champions from @scotgov @DigitalOfficeLG, various parts NHS in Scotland, as well as many different public bodies, local authorities, private and third sector orgs.

Looking for definitive best practices for #semanticHTML structure so that #accessible technologies like voice readers do the best job possible on complex web pages.

Help? @mattmay @jmspool @MrAlanCooper
#ux #webdesign
Specifically, sections:
- nesting - yes/no (it feels too much like nested tables to me - does it trip up screen readers?)
- use H2 instead of H1 (despite multiple H1s being "ok")?
- when/where/how to use ARIA role=heading for divs?
HTML structure is high level, few.
Content types, granular, many.

Have found (in no particular order)

Annoyed thread: A person named Kris Lint, who has left a whopping 327 comments on the SyFy channel’s website, decided to write an extended comment on my interview on #disability & scifi about how he can’t think of one #disabled person who knows who wouldn’t “jump for a cure.”
Kris says disabilities aren’t things people want, just things people are forced to overcome. Kris says no parent wants a disabled child.
Kris then proceeded to say I’m ignorant for thinking tech should aim to create a more #accessible world rather than focus exclusively on cure. If anyone out there knows Kris Lint, leading commenter on the SyFy channel website, please tell them to kindly fuck all of the way off.

Dear white sisters & brothers in #TORONTO,

I’m asking you a question that may make you uncomfortable, that may make you recoil, that may make you hide, &/or that may make you retaliate in various ways.

You are the majority of people who vote.
Your vote has impacted our lives.
Yes white sisters & brothers, your. Your vote has impacted our lives.
