Bringing this twitter link over here because I’ve seen usernames like this a lot, so maybe consider screen readers before writing your name with those special characters that look like different fonts! https://twitter.com/kentcdodds/status/1083073242330361856?s=21
@catgoat And see, we've got it even worse on Masto because of those damn special-font emojos a lot of instances (including the one I'm on) have
It'd be okay of people would CW it but most of the time they don't
@autumnontape yeah it’s a little frustrating because there *was* just starting to be a culture of cw-ing those posts but I think it got disrupted with some of the big influxes. i don’t use a screen reader, but I try to be conscious of it because it seems super fucking annoying.
@catgoat (I say "we" but by that I mean the community, I'm not an assistive technology user fyi)
