I just found another blog by another person who recently went blind. He was talking about playing blind golf, and it was a really inspiring post. I can’t comment though, because there’s a word verification, or CAPTCHA.
I despise these things more than just about any accessibility issues I run into online. Some of them are actually accessible, but this one on blogger is not. Not for me anyway. I just can’t make out the numbers.
It bothers me to no end when I can’t access something because of these things. It might sound silly, but its an independence thing for me, something I can’t achieve online. There is a service that will interpret these things for you, if you take a screenshot of the image. But I haven’t figured it out yet.
I’m just really bummed, because I like finding other people who have lost their vision, and having a word verification stop me really bothers me.
Thats my rant. I’ve encountered these stupid things twice today. Grrr.
