If you had told my 10-year-old Blind girl self that in 30 years i’d be taking pictures of a touchscreen with another touchscreen to find out from a conversational AI down on land how much longer the flight is; and that this is somehow easier than making the airline fix their website so i can read the damn time for myself; she would have been mad, but maybe not entirely surprised

@ChanceyFleet did it work?

I was on the news a couple of times when I was a little kid but never on one of those shows. A couple of years ago, we were cleaning out my grand parents house and found an article from the Montreal gazette about me when I was 4. I only have screen shots but there was an article about me. Forget the text. maybe I should upload the photos. Almost all my followers on here are blind but why not.

@jaybird110127 @cordova5029 @BorrisInABox @bryansmart @celrock @bmoore123 @munchkinbear Okay, here you go. Two answering machines for the price of one, though the first only takes up 4 minutes of the file. It's interesting in its own way, IMO. I don't know how many people who care about this stuff will be awake at midnight PDT, or exist in general, but I might repost it tomorrow morning.

@simon @jaybird110127 @cordova5029 @BorrisInABox @bryansmart @celrock @munchkinbear the goold old tape ones. I had one with two tapes. one for the greeting and another for incoming messages. However, I did have one of the ones with a single tape although it was a regular sized tape. However, this was in 1990.

okay, a customer wants to do online banking with lynx. remember that command line browser. I don't think it supports Javascript does it? Doubt this will work but technically, things should work regardless of user agent. Think this will fail but let's set up a linux vm and see what happens.

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

okay, so none of the major Canadian banks will let someone log in with this lynx browser. Different things happen but none of them are successful. I tried a few US ones as well and no joy there either. How far should we take the idea that sites should work regardless of user agent choice.

So what is the hottest, latest, and greatest audio recording app these days? For doing things like recording audio and uploading them to say, here? Or does everybody just use the old Voice Memos thing.

Has anyone here managed to sign up with Discord, including getting an accessibility cookie to work? I've tried on both Windows and iOS now, gotten a cookie both times, and still can't bypass the fucking #Hcaptcha.

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@VE3RWJ are they stil using that awful Hcapcha thing? Got that to work once I think and it failed multiple times.

love when you get a replacement credit card because the old one is expiring. there is a new expiration date and cvv but those don't come in an accessible format. Now how to activate? Might try ocr things but if I get it wrong a couple of times, might get locked out.

used AI teen ager. At he is useful for something. Should be for all the food he eats!

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@douglawlor yes, I still have one too but I have never found flat bed scanners read cards well. Also, this mastercard is flat. can sort of feel where the chip is but the numbers are not tactile.

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@InsaneAtheist yeah, that is where it was. he is 17 and 6 foot 3 and like 180 pounds so not tiny anymore.

@Bruce_Toews @silverleaf57 @rowdyamerican no, some of us are seriously considering leaving this city. too expensive and it isn't that good!

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@Bruce_Toews @silverleaf57 @rowdyamerican no, nothing bad happened.

bmoore123,

‘I worship God!’ Greene melts down again in profane rant after attacking Fauci in Congress - Raw Story

And acts like she worships something pretty evil...

@knittingknots2 I can't believe people actually vote for this woman and keep her there. Did they actually expect anything different than last time?

Montrealmarc, to random

I’m really excited to give these RayBan Meta smart glasses a whirl, especially with this new A I and to be able to ask questions lie “do they have spaghetti and meatballs on the menu”. Or when I’m walking with my cane “what building am I near?” I understand that. They might be available at Bestbuy here and they even have an installment plan of 34 something plus taxes and admin othee. Think I’l be checking them out in the next few weeks, but I’d be anxious to hear from any totally blind folks who have gotten em and what their conclusions are.

@Montrealmarc @atfarnum okay, must find this demo. Might convince me to spend cash.

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@JStark @Montrealmarc @atfarnum so it is not live yet? Maybe I don't want to spend that money if they don't work yet. Will go find this demo and how come I didn't go see them at CSUN. wish I would have.

@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@Montrealmarc @atfarnum I use whatsapp often because it is better than discord or other chat things although Signal is pretty accessible now.

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@rowdyamerican @Montrealmarc @atfarnum well, I am not going to pay almost $400 for that.

bmoore123,
@bmoore123@disabled.social avatar

@JStark @Montrealmarc @atfarnum it was and there was a session I wanted to go to and just never got back.
