Visually impaired people in the US can get a device from the Library of Congress or a state library that plays special talking books. I've seen and used one (I have a visually impaired friend and former roommate), but most people haven't. That's because it's not actually legal for someone sighted to have one in their possession.

Trying to live the kinda life where Chuck Tingle never drags me with a satirical erotic work within a day of my mistakes going public.

Braille & technology 

"We cannot separate Braille and technology and have done with it. There are blind people for whom Braille is the only way they are able to access their place of work, refusing to teach blind people Braille would shut them out from seeking such jobs in future. Furthermore, it ignores the existence of deafblind people who may use Braille as their primary communication method. Without Braille, some deafblind people would be unable to access the computer at all."

Different people! Have! Different access needs!

Before you buy that e-book from Amazon, do yourself a favor and see if the publisher has a website with direct sales.

I've found a number of books that I was interested in DRM-free, in EPUB format, and sometimes at a discounted price, just by poking around a little.

Me listening to it while editing: "Honestly I should have always known it would go this way."

Just realized I think an Aquaman comic with an educational bent about ocean ecosystems could be really fun. Think Mark Trail, but hopefully with less stiff writing (okay, so most-recent-artist Mark Trail)

Nice! lifehacker.com/15-of-the-best-

Love that Hollow Knight is on here. And re: Final Fantasy, just emulate the originals, or at least do so after trying them this way.

I want to revisit Final Fantasy, but I've only played the PSX port, which adds MP and is vastly preferable. I should look for a NES hack that does that...

Tonight on Star Trek: The Next Generation
Captain Picard returns from shore leave but they ran out of the special effects budget and just solved everything with a meeting.

(I'm also mentally starting the countdown to a long reply about what a privacy nightmare these things are which: yep, I get it, that's why I haven't had anything like it before. But until my psychic powers arrive in the mail it's the best option I've got.)
