r/RoastMe http://redd.it/up57ka 13d ago Silver 1 Wholesome 2 Powerups Post 1

31m with a dark sense of humor. I lost my eyesight at 11, my bands singer at 18, my Dad at 23, got divorced at 29. I'm a blind guitarist with an addictive personality, fitness freak, avid sports gambler. Recently got engaged and I have no idea what she looks like. Lets have some fun! Roast me.

Iphones have a accessibility setting that reads stuff allowed, idk about android. Windows does to I think (it's a big maybe on that) and I would assume mac has something as well since iphones have it then for typing some speech to text would be useful, but I bet braille keyboards exist.

u/DeSpTG 13d ago edited 13d ago

Yes and for those who wonder, you can set the reading speed to very high and the volume to very low, so actually nobody understands something except people with exceptional hearing abilities such as blind people.

u/Immediate-Duck-512 13d ago

I lived with my friend who’s blind for awhile, it reads all the punctuation and even emojis off to them at this absolutely insane speed. Somehow she was able to use a phone just about as well as a seeing person, unless the source wasn’t “accessible”, meaning it didn’t work with the screen reader software. That and describing pictures was all she ever needed help with.

u/BillMurrayismyFather 12d ago

I'm not blind but I have my phone read /prorevenge and /tifu etc.. for me and generally it sounds typos out close enough but then you get things like 18m and you know they mean 18 male but my phone reads it as 18 meters.

Edit: Changed wrong measurement.

u/DribsFlantoosey 13d ago

I make websites accessible for a living. There are government requirements for it in the US and EU (with specific parameters on who has to follow the law). The regulations not only cover disabilities like loss of sight, but also cognitive issues. Meaning, content should be clear, and readable to assistive technologies, like screen readers.

The other commenter talking about iPhones is correct. Every popular OS (phone or computer) contains accessibility features, and has for a very long time. There is also dedicated software and hardware that many people use.

The coding language that's used to display websites and apps can also translate what's being displayed to speech. It's pretty simple, and the majority of my job is getting people to adhere to long-existing code and design standards, because accessibility is already well integrated into most common code bases.

Friend of a friend went with us to a music festival. Dudes blind, but a musical savant.

We were all sitting around talking and he mentioned his gf and someone asked if she was hot, dudes like ‘I have no idea.’

Had to help him find his mom inside the festival. I asked him what she looked like and caught myself at the end of the question and said ‘man, that’s probably a dumbass thing to ask.’ Guy says no sweat, gives me her description and we go looking for her.

I found her like a half an hour later. She looked absolutely nothing like he described😂. He was like 🤷‍♂️ I gave him a description for future reference.
