@120 Computer software for the blind reads webpages out to them. I have met several blind people on online forums who use software to read pages, and braille keyboards to type. Also, legal blindness means your vision is worse than 20/200 and (this is the most important part!) cannot be corrected with lenses, or, 20/200 is the best it can be corrected to. My vision is worse than 20/200, but as glasses improve it to about 20/40, I am not legally blind. By this definition, a person who is legally blind may not be able to use a computer any better than a completely blind person. I know without my glasses I have to be right up on the computer screen, and my vision is only 20/400! It's actually rather uncommon for a person to be totally blind (that is, not being able to see anything at all), so most blind people you meet are legally blind.
That's really bad for your eyes.
lmao, doesnt it suck to wake up to reality?
