How do you use the computer?
Posted by Hannahwashere on 10/19/2009 at 4:07 PM
I was curious to how people who are blind are able to use the computer. I figure maybe remembering keys or having a keyboard with braille but what about seeing the screen?
Hopefully this doesn't sound rude.

I don't think it's rude. I don't like using the comvuter because it's too visual.

I just get confused with Jaws. I would much rather use my braillenote.

To respond to your question, most blind people memorize the keyboard and use a talking software to read the screen.
Yea mimi is right about that and some like people use a device like a braillenote it's kind like a miny computer with a braille display so we can see what are doing online hope this helps PaulinaRe:How do you use the computer?Posted by Music fan24 on 10/19/2009 at 8:10 PM

In my opinion, braillenotes are a lot easier.
