We’re using the Multilingual Plugin
@vernon.coffey in Software Development Circle, who is a ruby developer, is working (pair programming) with Angus of Pavilion who wrote the plugin to support some bug fixes since the project was sidelined by Wikipedia.
Though I’m not sure about screen reader access. There’s a bunch of threads on the topic on the discourse meta, it seems maybe the best way to support it would be to engage in and support development by discourse since that’s a pretty fundamental level feature. Based on some of the discussion there are some challenging problems, but also things are getting worked out.
My understanding is that often in open source projects there’s a challenging dynamic of people working on things they want (the shadow side of “be the change you want to see”), so sometimes a bit of advocacy and/or funding is needed for features which don’t have champion developers already.
EDIT: fixed typo bold above
That’s why SoFA’s sending someone to keep the Multilingual localization project alive! Thank you @vernon.coffey ! And props to Angus from Pavilion for being willing to mentor as there’s a bit of a learning curve into discourse and the plugin itself, even for someone familiar with ruby!
Want to join forums or software development circle?!
Forums is mostly working on the content development right now tough, and a few simple development things at this point.
Looking at what you’ve got there it’s pretty great!
We’re just in the initial stages of exploring a wiki for SoFA’s collaborative documentation and policy manual rather than the forums platform. I did consider Discource but it didn’t quite seem like the right platform because of collaborative editing conflicts and a bit limited functionliaty.
