Following up on a conversation in #suggestions a few days ago, I encourage the leadership to consider spinning up Matterbridge or something like it to replicate Slack channels to other chat services. It will help the community improve its accessibility by accommodating users who wish to use alternate technologies.
I would suggest that channels get replicated to Discord and IRC. Discord is popular with many users and there have been several people asking for it over the past few months. IRC is a universal service with much better accessibility tools for the blind. I also urge the leadership to consider spinning up an IRC logger so our conversations can be saved and searchable beyond the limits of the free Slack membership.
I’ve personally run Matterbridge to replicate a Slack channel to Discord. The software has been rock solid and the users are happy with the flexibility with some even using both Slack at work and Discord at home.
