Does anyone know an android keyboard that has all the nice special keys that make using a desktop computer efficient? (Arrow keys, page up/down, alt…) It also needs to be voice access accessible.

A friend of mine can not use her hands at all at the moment, and is using voice access on her phone. We plan to set her up to use her Ubuntu desktop tomorrow using KDEConnect. We're hoping a keyboard like that would solve problems like scrolling and switching window focus.

Irgendwie habe ich das Gefühl, dass es gerade wieder vielen nicht gut geht. Den Eindruck hatte ich schon vor dem Krieg und jetzt um so mehr. Auch meine letzten Wochen sahen eher durchwachsen aus.

Zwar kann ich nicht viel machen, aber ich kann euch mal wieder einen Raum zum miteinander reden anbieten. Denn: Zusammen sind wir weniger allein!
Es gibt kein bestimmtes Thema, kommt einfach vorbei.

The Fediverse has lots of blind and partially-sighted users who rely on audio screen reader software to tell them what is going on.

Here's how to make your posts more suitable for screen readers:

-Use CamelCase on hashtags, where each new word has a capital letter, for example #DogsOfMastodon instead of #dogsofmastodon. CamelCase makes it much easier for screen readers to see the different words and read them out properly.

-Don't use long groups of emoji all next to each other, these are really irritating to hear read out loud.

-Add text descriptions to images and videos before you post them. Do this by attaching the file and clicking "edit" before you post it, then add the description.

p.s. The Mastodon bug where CamelCase hashtags were being accidentally replaced has now been fixed (github.com/mastodon/mastodon/p).

@dasnessie You can also use the pickling liquid as a base for salad dressings and sauces, just keep in mind that it’s going to be quite salty.

I’ve also sometimes added a whole lemon quarter (pulp and all) when puréing hummus. I find that the pith isn‘t that bitter anymore after fermentation.

@dasnessie Hm, this needed a second to parse. Unionized is not same as un-ionized, even though they are spelled the same way. Now I imagine lemons on strike asking for a pay rise :D

food, vegan, condiment 

They are great in any dish that wants some lemony-ness! Thinly cut of the peel (that's what you're gonna use, toss the pulp), cut up however you like, and add to your dish! I recommend it in couscous, tajine, creamy sauces, hummus, gremolata, and salad dressings, among other things!

…label, put the lids on loosely, and let sit at room temperature for two to four weeks before moving to the refrigerator! They keep for a very long time (my last batch lasted me about a year, and then I had eaten it all).

PSA: Ich teile gerne lustige Bilder, aber nur mit Bildbeschreibung.

Und es ist leider echt viel witziges Zeug, das ich bisher nicht teilen kann. Seid nicht so. Nehmt euch die Minute für eine Bildbeschreibung.

Und meine deutschsprachige Timeline könnte mehr CWs nutzen. In der englisch trötenden Timeline sehe ich wesentlich mehr Achtsamkeit dafür.
