#484 bemenu height default to 30 from 20 5 days ago

Comment by ~proycon on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

I'm also still in favour of increasing the default yes, even though the tap-and-hold technique of course helps a lot.

For a little while now, I've bumped the bemenu height to 30 from 20. This seems like a reasonable default. What does everyone think? I found 20 too prone to fat-fingering. This also feels closer to the dmenu defaults.

I haven't really tried 30 yet but I had indeed also contemptlated raising the default; in spite of having pretty slim fingers, it's fairly error-prone indeed.

#53 Give the user a dropdown for the branches/tags in a man.sr.ht git repo 3 months ago

Comment by ~proycon on ~sircmpwn/man.sr.ht

This is indeed a rather cumbersome workaround. I think ideally the repo owner should be able to select on man.sr.ht which git refs (i.e. branches or tags) he/she wants to render, and which is the default. The user should be able to switch between the various versions of the documentation , and optionally a clear notice should be shown if the user is not on the latest version.

I think https://readthedocs.org and https://docs.rs/ serve as good examples for the desired behaviour.

#473 accessibility: screen-reader (text-to-speech) in menu 3 months ago

Ticket created by ~proycon on ~mil/sxmo-tickets

As we are thinking about localization in #247, I was also thinking about further accessibility features.

I think our menu-based system and the fact it can be controlled with hardware buttons may be good for blind users, that is; if we have some kind of simple hook that passes the highlighted menu item to a to something like picotts or festival, navigation would become fairly easy even when you can't see the screen.

This is not an immediate priority but I think a hackable project like ours could make an impact here, potentially.

I agree it's important. I'd like to work on a patch with a gettext PoC on an arbitrary menu to give a feeling of what it's like working with localized strings and dates in sxmo shell scripts.

If (or when..) we start with i18n/l10n, the hardest part is to document the localization process and to attract contributions.

You're most welcome to give it a try yes!
