Oh nice what does that site have? Does it have a phone system? Or instant messaging like the zone?


Re:An awesome social network.



It's actually very boring. It doesn't have anytgng like the zone. It doesn't even have message boards. I just found that out.


Re:An awesome social network.



Have you ever heard of blind planet?


Re:An awesome social network.



Yeah. Too slow on the braillenote.


Re:An awesome social network.



It now has a team-talk server.


Re:An awesome social network.



I was gonna call you and talk to you about this, but your phone was off. Abinknation is coming back really soon! There are already games on there now!


Re:An awesome social network.



I've been to both blind spot and blind planet and I don't like them. They are very boring and slow. There's not much to do and nothing's interesting. on blind spot I believe people just moan and groan and sorry but I feel no sympathy. and, I dont like the new games on blinknation. they are very stupid, elementary, and no fun at all. I mean why can't all these sites be like sites for sighted people too? Much more fun and active and much more to say and do.


Re:An awesome social network.



They're all really boring. The only good side is the zone.


Re:An awesome social network.



too much drama really. I still go on zbp but hey that's really my limit. and, I don't do much on there or talk to many people.


Re:An awesome social network.



Well, it's better than doing what I do, just check emails and post on here, and that's all I can do.


Re:An awesome social network.



I do agree the Zone is an awesome site, I mean think about it. Everytime I logged in, there was people online all the time. But, too bad, I'm so bord. All I can do is go on Skype and send E-mails and post on here. And i miss Blinknation. I don't understand why someone would wanna hack it. i logged in there everyday and when it the chatroom. It was fun.


Re:An awesome social network.



This site needs a feature to look at profiles and see who's online, and a phone chat line. then it would be fun just like the zone.


Re:An awesome social network.



See thats why I'm on facebook all the time and funtrivia. I like funtrivia because you can take quizes about a huge veriety of things. Also, there is about maybe 5 or 6 thousand players online at about just any time.

Hi. Have any of you checked out

Klango.net

Its a social network of almost 10000 blind/visually impaired people, it has a media catalog, and even a "Player", a downloadable client that you can use to access the site. It uses SAPI4 or 5, or the IVona voices to speak, and you can use audio themes, a wide selection of them, to show like when a contact changes his/her status and all that. It has an Avatar system, where you can upload a sample of your voice or something like that. It has blogs, a few cool games, a facebook and twitter client, wikipedia browser, forums, groups, its just amazing. And, it may not have a phone line system, but it does have a chat room app, and you can access your account, forums, and all that through the site on your IPod or anything like that too! You can watch and download youtube videos too, listen to the many podcasts and radio stations they have in the catalog, and even add your own. It has a translator, because there are people from around the world on there, so you can translate messages, posts, any tex field you come across, using google translator. There are even voice messages, free, and voice forums, paid with "Klango points", a system of money or whatever, but signing up, and just about everything there is free, and those that aren't free aren't really all that "Hot" anyways. So, I look forward to seeing you all there. :D

I can't access klango on my braillenote. Maybe on the apex it will be possible.
