Intercom will be hosting us for our August meetup. We will have Ariane (https://twitter.com/nahratzah) as our speaker, who will give her well-received AlterConf (https://alterconf.com/talks/non-verbal-accessibility) talk about non-verbal accessibility
Talk 1: Non-verbal accessibility by Ariane
Description: I have selective mutism, so I spend part of my life mute. Until recently, it only affected me some days and was not a problem. Recently it became prolonged and stronger, causing me to not be able to talk at all with people. This causes all kinds of interesting problems at work, ranging from the inability to say 'hi' to co-workers, to how I'll attend a meeting and provide input. Text To Speech software to the rescue! Turns out, this is a lot harder than you would expect. While my co-workers are accepting, they often forget. It also turns out that conversations have a lot of complicated rules that you wouldn't be aware of. Although that doesn't matter if the software for the meeting doesn't provide accessibility.
Remember to bring your laptop! You will have a chance to deep dive with speakers, pair programme on a tutorial, a project (could even be your own), ask a question (don't be shy, we are here to help).
If you have announcements, events, projects, questions, feel free to add them to:

Intercom is a fundamentally new way for internet businesses to communicate with customers, personally, at scale. It's a customer communication platform with a suite of integrated products for every team—including sales, marketing, product, and support. Our products enable targeted communication with customers on your website, inside your web and mobile apps, and by email.This contrasts with the old way where a business uses a tangle of point solutions, like marketing automation or helpdesk products, with every team operating in a silo. This makes it hard for teams to work together and be on the same page, resulting in a disjointed and very impersonal experience for the customer.
