Okay, I will say it: I find how #hashtags are being auto-corrected to lowercase in the #mastodon interface really damn annoying.

I *know* what I'm doing when I spell a #LongAnnoyingHashtag in camel case: it's way more readable that way. Why do I have to jump through hoops to have it tooted out like that?..

@rysiek hmm here it remembers the casing I used last time and usually proposes it again…

@mmu_man ah interesting, indeed! That happens. So it's only on the first hash use. That's way better, but it would still be nice for it to not change the case the first time around...

The reason is the caps hashtags are harder for screen readers, it's an accessibility feature.


@YRthegdnamestkn @rysiek @mmu_man

I was told by screenreader users that CamelCase hashtags are better than all lower case, because it cues the reader to know where to split the words?
