L’idée du week-end : Patreon-like mais sous forme de coopérative d’activité et d’emploi pour pouvoir salarier les créateur·ices.

i think the issue with most donation systems is that they require one to feel strongly enough to go out of their way to donate, so not very many people donate even if they are able to do so, and many of those who do only donate to what's most visible or notable to them (often only the big notable projects and not the small ones that could really use a few extra bucks)

i have my own wild idea for a donation system that i think could help with getting smaller things some income, but I'm not smart enough to figure out how to make it work, nor do I have enough reach to make its existence known let alone convince anyone to actually use it (and the nature of what I've thonked up wouldn't work as well without enough users)

(maybe I'll try explain my idea and leave it out for others to think about too later)

Mais donc, qu'est-ce qu'il y aurait comme langage de programmation adaptés à l'initiation d'enfants/adolescents/jeunes adultes ou ?

Et par ailleurs, on est en train de réfléchir à comment faire du tactile, mais c'est un projet à long terme¹, et il y a certaines limites physiques qui font que ce sera de toutes façons limité à une initiation de base.

¹ Et non financé pour l'instant, donc on se limite à la réflexion générale sur le concept, on n'a pas les moyens de commencer à l'implémenter.

Rappel : l'ABPAM ne connaît rien au libre (mais a une salle informatique, sous Windows avec Jaws et NVDA) et notre équipe ne connaît rien aux problématiques d'accessiblité.

La collaboration avec l'ABPAM (Association Burkinabés des Personnes Aveugles et Malvoyantes) se met tout doucement en place.
Pour l'initiation à la de leurs élèves, nous partions assez naturellement sur du (vu que , c'est pas vraiment accessible à des aveugles).
Mais en fait, vu comment l'indentation est un élément du texte en Python, est-ce que Python est vraiment ?

Bon, apparemment de réponses à une autre instance quoi.

Y'a un problème avec l'instance ?
Je ne peux plus envoyer de messages...

Je viens de rajouter LOL — Logiciel Libre, une affaire sérieuse à ma liste de recommandations pour celles et ceux qui souhaiteraient approfondir la question de l'hygiène numérique (à travers la question du #LogicielLibre, ici).

Mes recommandations :

#HygièneNumérique #FLOSS #Film #Libre

Il y aurait quoi comme outil libre pour organiser une collection de photos ?
Notamment lorsque plusieurs photos sont similaires et qu'on ne sait pas encore laquelle garder ?

Je sais qu'il y a plein d'outils pour ça mais je ne les connais pas...

asking for help from blind and partially sighted users, please boost 

Hello blind and partially sighted users of the Fediverse: I'm a sighted person who is setting up a small accessibility lab specifically focused on screen readers and keyboard access for testing and improving free and open source software. I am reasonably familiar with the dominant technologies in the space, but I'd love to know about your favorite screen readers on any platform. I will be using Windows and Linux VMs as much as possible but I'm hoping to also get access to a recent Mac so Mac software is definitely in scope.

Currently, I'm aware of Dolphin and Cobra as the largest players on Windows, and I plan to purchase licenses for both. I'll also be setting up testing with ORCA, NVDA, and Apple VoiceOver.

I would love to hear your recommendations for software not listed here, your thoughts on these programs, and anything else you'd like to let me know. Thank you so much!

Installer sur le disque dur à l'intérieur d'un PC puis mettre le disque dur sur le Mac originel ça a des chances de marcher ?
J'ai des doutes....

Show thread

Pour installer sur un qui ne boote pas sur clé USB (en tous cas pour lequel je n'ai pas trouvé de solution) il y aurait quoi comme solution ?
