I hate people who walk around while on the phone. Sit down. And if you can't help yourself but talk extremely loudly, go into another room. Some of us are trying to work, and do not need to here half your conversation, or in some cases, both halves of it.
Daily reminder that for many blind people, #Apple is the most useful and productive mobile operating system. It's not that Android is hard to use, but when text selection, especially on the web and in email, is from hard to impossible, and when one cannot spell check what they've written, and typing is either a minor annoyance (braille (input not registering sometimes) onscreen keyboard (very slow usually) external keyboard (yet another device to manage)), you begin to understand why people who don't enjoy customization, or getting the "most" out of a device choose iOS, especially for accessibility, and the AI of image recognition and such. And FOSS phones, like the PinePhone, won't be accessible until Orca/ATSPI can communicate with touch screens, and that won't happen without developers.
So, when you get that urge to say "I told you so you Apple sheeple, you should have been using FOSS!" Try to remember that some people don't have much of a choice.
I just released version 1.1.0 of my first Android application! (After releasing version 1.0.0 where I forgot one thing...) It is called StoryGame, and it is based on the dice game StoryCubes. So maybe you can check it out! I don't know if people will enjoy playing it, but you can try! https://github.com/PrivacyDragon/StoryGame_Android
Oh, a few days/weeks/centuries ago, I found out, by trying it out, that Ruby actually *does* support the and/or/not keywords, and not just the Java &&/||/!@#$%^&*()_+| stuff. So that's good. I'm kinda starting to like Ruby a bit because of stuff like that, like, there are multiple ways of doing things, and if one doesn't make sense to you, then there's sometimes another way that might.
As soon as he began to play his ominous magical tunes, strange things started to happen. Heavy dark clouds started gathering. There came a tension in the air. The longer he played, the darker the clouds became. He did not stop playing. Then big raindrops began to fall. And soon he stood in the middle of a supra-natural, eldritch thunderstorm, still playing on.
I mean, so many blind people own iPhones. How many don't know about the Braille Screen Input feature? How many who used to could see don't know about the handwriting feature? How many don't know about the "Magic Tap"? All because Apple just doesn't give them any information. So every time I go to a presentation style meeting on Assistive Technology, all people really want to hear about is the iPhone? And I used to think it was dumb, like "I mean gosh don't y'all know enough about the iPhone?" But now I see why; it's because they don't. And they've been left in the dark about it so long that even *after* they've learned what they need, they think "What else is hidden from me? What else did Apple not tell me?" And that's a shame.
