Received your message, it wasn't me.[edit]

I actually have never even viewed that particular page, much less made any edits to it. My guess is that somebody was using a proxy with my IP address.

Removals from 2015-16 US network schedule[edit]

Why has Fox College Football been removed? It is a program on the official schedule, and it is included on all of the previous schedule pages. Gracepoint not allowed? The show will not be returning from the previous season, the fact that it is a miniseries should not matter. The same with The Slap.

Purpose of alt text and unusual punctuation[edit]

A primary purpose of alt text is to enable visually impaired people to understand the content of images. I regularly test my alt text in at least three readers, starting with ChromeVox, Google TTS (supercedes FireVox), NVDA and supplementing with WebAnywhere (which is a whole different beast). I don't own an Apple, so if you have an Apple, you could assist by testing Apple VoiceOver, etc.

In the alt text to the movie poster for The Empire Strikes Back, I placed the following note, which you did not notice: <!-- The spacing and punctuation in this alt text is intended to assist screen readers. Please test in at least two screen readers before making changes. -->

  • ". This poster shows a montage of scenes from the movie." The beginning period inserts a pause between the reading of the header of the infobox, "The Empire Strikes Back" and the beginning of the sentence "This poster" so that a screen reader will read "The Empire Strikes Back *pause* This poster..."
  • "in the foreground, Luke Skywalker sits astride a taun taun;" Placing a space between gives minor assistance to several screen readers. For example, Google TTS pronounced "tauntaun" "taunten". I am OK with your removing the space (although I preferred the sounding of the separate syllables of "taun taun", but the next time you try modifying alt text, please test your changes.
  • "Chewbacca, R 2-D 2," Without the spaces, several screen readers had difficulty coping with the pronunciation of "R2-D2". For example, ChromeVox pronounces it something like "aret*explosion_of_breath* deet*explosion_of_breath*", while other screen readers do different things with this.
  • "and C3P0 round out the montage." My omission of the hyphen and use of zero was an error. Thanks for this correction, which reads well in all screen readers that I've tested.

Rogue One Edit[edit]

Saw Gerrera was also mentioned in a Star Wars Rebels episode. Confirmed in this official Star Wars show YouTube video. Start watching at 2:05; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Filn82qphCA. It was the season 2 episode "The Honorable Ones". This is also noted on the Saw Gerrera article. Wikicontributor12 (talk) 16:35, 8 July 2016 (UTC)
