Re: Gene you poor soul




If brltty is killing all other usb numbers, that's a bug that needs
fixing!  Much of the other computer peripherals going into modern
computers these days go in through usb ports.
If that ran, my standard keyboard and speakers would be killed and if
those two get killed, I can't use a computer since I use speech
synthesis for output since I've never been able to see a screen.

One time I remember the Navy went and fixed band width hogging bugs with
their mandatory training and took out the requirement to position a
mouse and click to move to the next slide.  This was done to support
accessibility.  Its other effect was on all of the ships in the fleets.
Sailors suddenly discovered it was easier to complete their mandatory
training.
That was one instance where accessibility improvement had a good effect
on those in remote environments.
