I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

I'm floored, because DuoLingo launched a beta for Navajo!

It's honestly making me a little emotional, because my family never inherited our ancestral language. My grandfather's generation were taken from their families and forced into indian boarding schools where they beat you for practicing your culture.

Seeing an indigenous language preserved in a mainstream tool is incredible.

Phew. Between COVID in november/december, the elections this month and breaking my tablet just last week.... things have been... well, an heck.

Just starting to settle back together, hopefully start being able to upload what little art I managed to do since and prepare for creating more.

Migration (mostly) done now, I think! Still need to refollow some folks but that's well underway. Also perhaps make a new avatar/etc to commemorate the occasion!
