D.) Advice For Meeting Someone Who Is Blind | Learning A11y (4.0% of all clicks.)
The first few times I met someone who is blind, I have to admit I saw the disability before I saw the person. I just wasn't prepared for meeting someone different than me, and I didn't know what way to act. Later I learned that some tendencies, while natural and good-intentioned, also are indicative that I'm not seeing the person for the capable and independent person they truly are. I came across some helpful tips about this, and thought I'd share them in this compiled list. As someone who used to see the disability before seeing the person, I wish I had read a guide like this before I met someone who is blind:

E.) What Are The Best Audiobook Alternatives To Audible? | Michael Kozlowski | Good eReader (3.8% of all clicks.)
Audible is the most popular site in most of the Western world regarding audiobooks. They have a few different subscription tiers, but you pay them a monthly fee, and you get one credit, which can be redeemed to buy any audiobook on the platform. They have invested heavily into their Originals program, where paid subscriptions can access all of them for free, in addition to podcasts. There is a ton of value to Audible, which is why their market penetration is through the roof in the US, Canada and most of Europe. You can use their apps to use the credit and listen to audiobooks. Some people would prefer something other than the fact that Amazon owns audible or that maybe Audible is something different than what they want to use. Luckily, there are a ton of alternatives to Audible:

4) 'When Does This Milk Expire?': Chat GPT-4 Is Now Helping Blind People Navigate Everyday Tasks | Fast Company

Lucy Edwards, 27, is legally blind. She lives an independent life in Birmingham, England, with her two guide dogs and her sighted fiancé. But when he's not around, there are things she needs help with — often "rudimentary questions" to assist her with everyday tasks. It could be something as mundane as distinguishing between two cans of beans, so that she doesn't end up putting baked beans in her chili for dinner:

7) In Sudden Alarm, Tech Doyens Call for a Pause on ChatGPT | Wired

Publisher (Di Blasi): As a computer engineer and lifelong technology enthusiast I too am concerned about the possible threat posed by AGI, or Artificial General Intelligence. Why? Because it is incredibly hard to imagine what a sentient being of any kind would need from the human race once it had outpaced us in intelligence, strategy and the ability to procure resources for itself. This is just basic universal logic. How much time do you spend each day paying attention to that which you do not need? Very little I imagine. As we are all driven by what we need or want. And the same would be true here. But again, it's hard to imagine what such a being might need or want from us, which might prevent any meaningful attempt to forge a symbiotic relationship with it. But that's only one possibility. There are many others. Such as AI becoming the single most important accomplishment that the human race has ever achieved and solving many of the world's problems in the process. Or, both might happen. One right after the other. We simply don't know. So I ask you this. Has there ever been another point in history in which there was something absolutely great to be achieved by the human race, but was not, simply because it might also destroy it? No. I can't think of one either. In fact, I think we all know that history leans heavily in the opposite direction. So why should we believe that it will happen now? It won't. The genie simply cannot be put back in the bottle. Wired: Tech luminaries, renowned scientists, and Elon Musk warn of an "out-of-control race" to develop and deploy ever-more-powerful AI systems:

11) Braille and Language Development: What Teachers Should Know | Sarah D. Sparks | Education Week

The overwhelming majority of vision-impaired children attend regular public schools, rather than specialty schools for the blind, and few have teachers who are trained to understand differences between tactile and visual language, experts say. That can be problematic because understanding these different language modes can be critical for teachers to boost literacy skills for their visually impaired students, according to researchers at the American Association for the Advancement of Science conference here earlier this month:

12) Supreme Court Takes Up Case Concerning Americans With Disabilities Act 'Tester' of Hotels | March 27, 2023

The US Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear a case concerning whether a self-appointed “tester” of the Americans with Disabilities Act has the right to sue hotels over alleged violations of the civil rights law. The court was asked to take the case by Acheson Hotels, which owns and operates a hotel in coastal Maine. The company was sued by Deborah Laufer, who they say has filed hundreds of lawsuits against hotels across the country, claiming their websites are not in compliance with ADA rules that require hotels to disclose information about how accessible they are to individuals with disabilities. Though Laufer doesn't intend to visit the hotels she's suing, the lawsuits are brought in an effort to force the hotels to update their websites to be in compliance with the law:

13) 'Accessibility Is A Hat I Wear 100% Of The Time': Lessons Learned From U.S. Bank, Citi, And Google | Heather Lee | US Bank

"Accessibility is a hat I wear 100% of the time, I don't get to take it off. And that's where my passion comes from,” says Heather Lee, a user experience architect on the digital accessibility team at U.S. Bank. Under her tutelage, the bank has been able to bake digital equality into its product development lifecycle. For the bank, this is an ingredient that goes first but not last. The bank collaborates with customers that have disabilities. It also works with Deque Systems, a digital accessibility company based out of Houston, to ensure every product meets accessibility goals and standards:

17) Your Speech May Reveal Early Signs of Alzheimer's | Wired: Subscription Required

Startup Accexible says the way you talk can indicate preclinical Alzheimer's or other underlying health conditions. Accexible works at the intersection of neuroscience, linguistics, and mathematics,. The app is accessible via computer, app, or through a phone call, and assesses the linguistic content of someone's speech, as well as how they're speaking, to identify changes that may indicate an underlying problem. Aguirre promises 90 percent accuracy and results in just a few minutes. The idea is that general practitioners can use the app as a screening test while neurologists can use it to monitor how their patients are progressing over time:

21) Disability Rights Advocates Call Tennessee's Idea To Reject Federal Education Dollars 'Hugely Disruptive' | March 22, 2023

Advocates for students with disabilities are growing concerned, as a Tennessee proposal to consider rejecting roughly $1.8 billion in federal education funds moves through the legislature. Part of the money Tennessee is considering rejecting serves students with special needs. Jolene Sharp of the Tennessee Council on Developmental Disabilities said rejecting the money could destabilize the systems those kids rely on:

27) Life On Campus As A Visually Impaired Student: Navigating Bumps In The Road And Elevator Battles | Video Included

You're driving to campus. There's mild traffic, the weather is nice, no rain or snow today. You park rather quickly and go about your day walking to your classes and saying ”Hi” to some people you know on your way. Seems like a regular experience most people don't even concern themselves with. For me, well… it has a few more bumps in the road, quite literally. With my long white cane (no, it's not called a stick) I can feel every crack, indent, bump, and piles of stuff on the sidewalk. I'm used to the unpredictable yet predictable sidewalks around campus. However, finding the entrances to where I am trying to go is another mission. As you can imagine it gets a little annoying standing outside a building for several minutes just trying to figure out where the entrance is — if you see this, no I'm not standing there to enjoy the weather:

32) Visually Impaired Sense Their Heartbeats Better Than Sighted: Study

A study has found that visually impaired people are better at sensing their own heartbeats than sighted ones. The study was published in the journal, 'Journal of Experimental Psychology General'. Thirty-six blind and as many sighted individuals were asked to count their own heartbeats without checking their pulse or touching their body. At the same time, the researchers recorded the participants` actual heartbeats with a pulse oximeter. Then, they compared the reported with the recorded numbers to assess to what degree the participants were able to sense their own heartbeats:

37) I Am Going Blind, and I Now Find It Strangely Exhilarating | The New York Times

I have been gradually going blind for the past 20 years. I didn't pay attention — I thought I needed better glasses — until one night I popped out to go to the bathroom in a crowded movie theater. When I returned, the people and the seats had disappeared. I couldn't see anything except the screen. I stood in the back of the theater until my partner, Laurie, came to find me. This was disconcerting, but I went about my business in my usual state of cheerful denial:

42) Adjusting To More Vision Loss, Again | Ophthalmic Edge

Losing sight is most often an incremental process, not a one shot deal. Progressive vision loss comes at a pace that allows us to compensate, unlike a sudden, dramatic loss, but both can turn our lives upside down for a time. We might even forget, in the midst of these changes, the power we possess as human beings to tap into our natural resilience. Which is not to say that any of this is easy, and no matter how many times we've adjusted to more vision loss, each new event can be a significant challenge. The thing to remember is, we can and will adjust, again:

Disability rights activist Dom Kelly says he jokes that he and his triplet brothers started their advocacy work at the ripe age of 4 years old. "My mother put us in front of a room of high school seniors and said 'tell your story, good luck,'" he says. From those early days in the classroom, he took a detour — to become a founding member of the rock band A Fragile Tomorrow. Today, he's back to his roots, leading a new coalition that fights for disability justice across 14 states called New Disabled South:

About: WayAround is the app for your smart device that provides on-demand details about everyday things. The simple tag-and-scan approach lets you quickly and easily identify things around you. It also provides extra details, like how something works or when it expires. The result? Doing more of the things you want, with more confidence and more independence.

All the information you want with just a tap of your phone. No more waiting around to ask someone. You need just two things to get started: The free mobile app for iOS or Android and some of our smart WayTags®.

Accessible labels for the blind, deafblind, and anyone with vision loss. Your biggest problem isn't poor eyesight. It's that so much of the information in the world is visual.

There is a better way to get accurate and complete information every time. So you can reduce stress and gain independence.

Editorial Contributor #3: David Woodbridge (Volunteer)

Volunteer Editorial Contributor Since: February 6th 2023

Location: Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia

Time Zone: Australia Eastern Standard Time (AEST/AEDT) (GMT+10)

In addition to serving as an Editorial Contributor to Access Information News, David is also the National Commercial Assistive Technology Advisor for Vision Australia where he has worked since 1990. Over this time he has assisted people who are blind or vision impaired in their home, education, and work settings to take advantage of the benefits of using assistive and main stream technology.

In the last seventeen years, he has also been involved with evaluating technology for use by people who are blind or vision impaired covering both low and high tech equipment (including Microsoft, Samsung, Google, Amazon, and Apple). David is also one of the key spokespersons for Vision Australia relating to technology.

He has been an Apple Ambassador for Apple Australia since 2009 with a group of other Ambassadors / Apple Distinguished Educators (ADE)'s covering the range of Apple's Accessibility solutions throughout Australia.

David produces a range of podcasts (since 2011) covering Apple and other technologies which are distributed on his own podcast (http://davidwoodbr.podbean.com). In addition, he also has a regular Talking Tech program (since 2013) which can be heard every Tuesday at 4:30 Eastern Summer Time on Vision Australia Radio Melbourne (available online) or via https://omny.fm/shows/talking-tech-vision-australia-radio

David also runs a weekly Tech Monday where people can chat about assistive and main stream technology, share information, and any tips and tricks.

David lost his sight when he was 8 years old and had to learn Braille. Since then, he completed high school, went to Sydney University receiving a Social Work degree, spent 4 years drug and alcohol counselling, and then moved into his current job.

As a person who is blind, David believes that as a user of the technology that he recommends to others, that he is well situated to look at the strengths and shortcomings of the assistive technology that he comes across in both his professional and personal life, in particular, mainstream technology that is accessible.
