Table of Contents
I've made some new improvements to this website. Raymii.org is generated usingmy self-written static site generator named ingsoc, the new features arefocussed on accessibility. If you are using a screen reader or command-linebrowser this will benefit you. Or if you like to archive stuff offline. The twomain improvements are a text-only version of every content page(article/tutorial etc) and a 'Skip to main content' link.
[Three months ago I also did some site updates
Skip to main content
If you visit this site using a screen reader (like Orca) or a command linebrowser like
links the first thing on every page is a link to skip to the maincontent. Saves you going through the menu every time.
The W3C has a page on this: G1: Adding a link at the top of each page that goesdirectly to the main content area on their Web Content AccessibilityGuidelines.

Text only versions of content
Also in the context of accessibility, every content page has a text-onlyversion. There is a link at the top of every article, near the breadcrumb wherethe author and date of the article are listed. It will take you to a text-onlyversion of the article. Replacing
.txt in the URL will alsowork.
The text-only articles are the raw markdown I write and which the static sitegenerator uses to generate this site. As my main goal is spreading knowledge andentertaining fellow nerds, I want this site to get readers.
