I'm editing an open book available publicly available on web & also downloadable in PDF & ebook. I have a question about the accessibility of how I'm doing premises and conclusions for philosophical arguments with ordered lists <ol>.

we all seem to agree that it can be used to make "statements" but what are the other potential illocutionary forces of fashion? can you ask questions, make requests, greet, apologize, congratulate? this started as a joke idea in my head but actually now i want to read a full analysis of fashion through the lens of speech act theory
Two former colleagues, one of whom is a former teacher of mine, are the new editors of 'Philosophy': https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/philosophy/article/editorial-from-the-new-editors/C07E84F012FAD7091FB0BBA340738F66
Desparate plea to the #scifi fans on the fediverse for some help remembering a film. All I can remember is a recurring scene where characters keep discovering that parts of landscape have disappeared entirely & mysteriously, leaving behind bare dirt. Ruled out smoke monster in Lost; don't think it's "monsters from the Id" in Forbidden Planet either. Any ideas?
I'm the series editor for a series of #OpenTextbooks for Introduction to Philosophy courses, and we now have two books published (out of nine planned)!

Does anyone have experience producing slides for a course that are genuinely accessible?
I'd like to use PDF slides to show text, equations, images, tables, and plots in support of a mostly traditional lecture. I'd also like to make those slides available to the students as a study aid (I am not following any particular textbook). I would like this material to be as accessible as possible to Blind and Visually Impaired students. Anyone have any advice or experience?
